SLED TESTS OF THREE-POINT SYSTEMS INCLUDING AIR BELT RESTRAINTS
The experimental test program included six sled tests using five unembalmed cadavers and one anthropomorphic test dummy to evaluate a standard three point belt system and an air belt which inflates during impact. The tests were conducted on the Calspan HYGE sled facility simulating 30 mph frontal collisions for the three-point belts and 47 mph frontal collisions for the air belt systems.
