The Development of Anthropomorphic Test Dummies to Match Specific Human Responses to Accelerations and Impacts 670908

The anthropomorphic test dummies developed originally for testing aircraft ejection seats have been found to give test results that do not agree satisfactorily with operational results because of their lack of capability for reproducing and measuring human stresses. Such measurements are essential in automotive safety research and require that dummies be matched to humans with respect to their anthropometry, to such interfaces with the environment as shoulders, chest, abdomen, buttocks, etc., and with respect to dynamic response. Current developments of such dummies are described in the paper.
