Comparative Evaluation of the Biofidelity of EUROSID and SID Side Impact Dummies 881717

The European Side Impact Dummy “EUROSID”, and the Sid Impact Dummy “SID” were extensively tested in the frame of an experimental program conducted by the C.C.M.C. in Europe. The principal objective of this study was the evaluation of the biofidelity of both dummies according to impact response requirements selected by the ISO/TC22/SC12/WG5 experts, these requirements being, at the present the best and most updated technical informations available to assess the biofidelity of a dummy in side impact.
The test matrix comprised 40 impactor tests, 75 free fall tests and 7 sled tests. Each dummy region covered by ISO requirements was tested. In this paper the performance of EUROSID and SID dummies are, on the basis of available results, compared with human response data proposed by ISO.
