Performance Evaluation of Impact Responses of the Sid-Iis Small Side Impact Dummy 986149
A series of side impact tests have been conducted to evaluate
the biofidelity of the latest prototype of a small side impact
dummy, SID-II s β+(plus). The tests were lateral impacts for the
thorax, shoulder, and pelvis, as well as lateral drops for the
head, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. The test data were compared to
the response target corridors that were estimated by scaling the
cadaver test data to a smaller occupant.
The test results show that the head, should, thorax, abdomen and
pelvis of the SID-II s β+ either completely or close to meets the
response target corridors, and that its biofidelity has been
improved from the previous dummy SID II s B-prototype.
