An Advanced Finite Element Data Base of the Hybrid III Test Dummy: Phase I Model Generation and Sled Test Validation 940558

We are concerned with the development of an advanced finite element (FE) model of the Hybrid III dummy. The Hybrid III model is closely corresponding to the mechanical dummy with respect to geometry, segment masses and inertia properties.
The model is created to serve as an occupant data base in an explicit FE program. Therefore, much work is put on generality in positioning, model refinement, contact definitions and choice of material models.
Initial validations by sled test simulations show that the rigid version of the FE dummy has a potential to reproduce results obtained in rigid body programs, and in the future also reproduce test results obtained with the mechanical Hybrid III dummy with reasonable accuracy.
