Biofidelic Responses of the THOR-NT and Hybrid III Based on Component Tests 2008-01-0520

Component tests were conducted in order to evaluate the biofidelity of the THOR-NT on the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, face, femur, and lower extremity (THOR-Lx). The biofidelity of the dummy was evaluated by comparing its biofidelic responses with the PMHS response corridors. Likewise, component tests on each body part of the Hybrid III were conducted, and the biofidelity between THOR-NT (THOR-Lx) and Hybrid III were compared. The THOR tests were subject to test procedures established by GESAC, Inc./NHTSA; the THOR-Lx tests were subject to NHTSA/VRTC procedures.
Responses on the head and femur of both the THOR-NT and Hybrid III were within the PMHS response corridors. However, for other body parts - although each component of THOR-NT did not yield results that satisfied all the PMHS response corridors - the responses of THOR-NT were closer to the corridors than those of the Hybrid III.
