Injury Characteristics of Different Dummies Based on Frontal Impact Test
Crash dummies are one of the essential tools in crash tests, used to simulate injuries of real people in accident. But in fact, vehicle restraint systems are often developed according to specific dummies, and cannot cover all the population, so passengers of different sizes will show different injury characteristics in accidents. This article introduces the types of dummies and injury evaluation indexes. A single factor variable control is used to compare the injury and movement of the 5th, 50th and 95th dummies through sled impact method. The influencing factors of the difference are analyzed from four aspects.
