Belt Slip Measurements on Human Volunteers and the Part 572 Dummy in Low -G
A series of volunteer and dummy impact experiments was performed on a Hyge-type (accelerator) sled to study the relative motion between the upper torso restraint and the torso surface. Kinematic measurements were made using a three-dimensional photogrammetric analysis of high-speed film data. Belt slip was found to be in the range of approximately 10 to 30 mm with more slip experienced by volunteers than the dummy. The dummy showed a slight change in amount of slip with acceleration level and all slip takes place within the first 80 ms of belt loading.
