CALIBRATION OF THREE YEAR OLD CHILD DUMMIES

Tests were performed to develop appropriate calibration procedures to measure the dynamic response of a three-year-old dummy using acceleration measurements. The calibration procedure consisted of four parts: Part I Head Impact tests, Part II Chest Impact tests, Part III Head-Neck-Pendulum tests, and Part IV Lumbar Spine Flexion tests. The data from the Head Impact test, Head-Neck-Pendulum tests and the Lumbar Spine Flexion tests gave repeatable data. The data from the Chest Impacts were inconsistent.
