CALIBRATION OF THREE YEAR OLD CHILD DUMMIES. PHASE II

Tests were performed to refine the calibration procedures developed in Phase I (OCW 278-1). The work in Phase I consisted of developing appropriate calibration procedures for measuring the dynamic response of a three-year-old dummy using acceleration measurements. The results showed that acceleration and force measurements can be used to determine the dynamic response of a three-year-old dummy, and that all tests gave repeatable data but the most difficult test was the chest impacts due to individual dummy variations. If care is taken during the setup for each impact, repeatable data can be obtained.
