Assessing the restraint performance of vehicle seats and belt geometry optimized for older children
In a previous study, a computational model of child occupants 6 to 10 years old (YO) was validated using data from a sled test series with the 6YO and 10YO Hybrid III ATDs. Simulations using this model were used to identify characteristics of a vehicle seat and belt geometry that would improve...
Kinematics of pediatric crash dummies seated on vehicle seats with realistic belt geometry
A series of sled tests was performed using vehicle seats and Hybrid-III 6-year-old (6YO) and 10YO anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs) to explore possibilities for improving occupant protection for children who are not using belt-positioning booster seats. Methods: Cushion length was varied from...
