Modelling biomechanics of volunteers subject to loading by a motorized shoulder belt tensioner

Motorized shoulder belt tensioning is an occupant protection technology that has potential to reduce collision injuries. There is not a biofidelic model of shoulder belt tensioning that has been validated against experimental data. A lumped-mass model was developed and validated characterizing the biomechanical response of volunteers during motorized shoulder belt tensioning. The 5th percentile female, 50th percentile male and 95th percentile male population groups were studied. For the covering abstract see ITRD E141762.
