MADYMO 3D Simulations of Hybrid III Dummy Sled Tests 880645

This paper presents a three-dimensional 15-segment model of the Hybrid III dummy for the MADYMO 3D Crash Victim Simulation program. The model is based on measurements conducted on two Hybrid III dummies by Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Results of MADYMO 3D simulations will be compared with Hybrid III sled tests conducted by Ford Motor Co. These tests were conducted at three different impact severity levels. For the three test conditions good agreement between model and experimental results could be observed for most of the output parameters. Recommendations for further model improvements will be made.
