Assessment of H-Model Using Volunteer Tests 2003-01-2220

The validity of the full human body model in PAM-CRASH, called the H-Model, was assessed using human volunteers subject to either frontal or rear impact conditions. The frontal impact condition was simulated using a HYGE sled with a belted volunteer under a pulse with a peak acceleration of 9.8 g. The rear impact condition was also simulated using a HYGE sled, but with unbelted volunteers under a relatively soft pulse with peak acceleration about 3.8 g. The sled tests were modeled using PAM-CRASH. Occupant kinematics of the H-Model in the mid-sagittal plane were obtained and compared to volunteer responses.
