A 30 mph Front/Rear Crash with Human Test Persons 791030

A great deal of data is available concerning accident simulation tests with test dummies or cadavers but in comparison there is very little material on tests involving living volunteers.
This paper describes crash tests and sled tests with human test persons and Hybrid II dummies. To obtain a realistic accident simulation the tests were run with standard Audi 80 vehicles fitted with the standard seat belt systems.
The results clearly demonstrate that none of the test persons sustain any kind of physical injury at a precisely defined level of accident severity (vehicle-to-vehicle crash at a collision speed of approx. 30 mph).
In some cases considerable differences are revealed between the loadings imposed on the dummies and the human test persons.
