DESCRIPTION AND USE OF A MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR AIR BAG ACOUSTIC TRANSIENT DATA ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS
In the development and test of air bag personal restraint systems for use in motor vehicles, various design concepts, sizes, and operations suggest that the impulsive noises may differ significantly in both maximum intensity and frequency content. A program was implemented whereby a 'portable'impulse measurement system was acquired and the air bag noises generated by various systems being developed throughout industry were recorded and analyzed.
