A Validated Oblique Pole Side Impact Sled Test Methodology 2009-01-1433

This paper describes a new test methodology for simulating a near side oblique pole impact per FMVSS 214. Given the complexity, time, and cost of using full vehicle crash tests to develop occupant restraint systems, it is desirable to have a simple test method that allows engineers to develop an optimized restraint system in a timely and cost effective manner. The authors will present a new sled test method that accurately simulates a full vehicle oblique pole side impact test using only minimal vehicle components. This test method was validated through correlation with vehicle testing using the SID IIs (5th percentile female) and the ES2-RE (50th percentile male) dummies, on both a sport utility vehicle (SUV) and mid sized sedan to show application of this test method to a wide range of vehicle architectures.
