Development of a BIOSID Model for Side Airbag Design Study of a Large Size Car 980914
In this study a mathematical model was developed for the BIOSID dummy using the CAL3D simulation program. This model was correlated to the dummy impact response using pendulum tests on various body regions, and a side sled test. Favorable comparisons were achieved between the test results and the model responses. This model was then used for identifying optimal side airbag designs for a large car.
