Restraint System Evaluation - A Comparison Between Barrier Crash Tests, Sled Tests and Computer Simulation 780605

The injury criteria measured in belted dummies in frontal barrier crash tests are compared to results from two alternative evaluation methods: Sled tests and mathematical simulation.
The recorded values from the barrier crash tests and sled tests are compared by two different statistical inference tests in order to establish a possible significant difference between the methods.
It is shown that results from barrier crash tests compare well to the results from sled tests except for the injury criteria, SI and HIC, of the driver.
Only the passenger's situation was simulated mathematically and the results compare well to the results from a barrier crash test except for the HIC number.
