SLED TEST COMPARISONS BETWEEN THREE TYPES OF HUMAN SURROGATES

The experimental test program included seven sled tests using one unembalmed cadaver and three anthropomorphic test dummies to compare motions, during impact testing, between a near 50th percentile cadaver and two types of anthropomorphic test dummies of 50th percentile size and weight. The tests were conducted on the Calspan HYGE sled facility simulating 30 mph frontal collisions in a subcompact car. A three-point belt restraint system was used.
