Development of an Advanced Finite Element Model Database of the Hybrid III Crash Test Dummy Family 971042
The paper describes the development process of a detailed finite element model database of the Hybrid III crash test dummy family using the manufacturer's product data and test facilities. Specific reference is made to the Hybrid III 50th dummy. The models are validated at material, component, assembly and sled test application levels, and the modeling methodology is described. Each component of the dummy model is discussed together with the specific component impact tests used to validate the model. The specially designed sled tests used to generate highly controlled validation data are detailed.
