Steering Control System-Passenger Car-Laboratory Test Procedure

1968-11-01
HISTORICAL
J944A_196811
1. SCOPE Evaluation of the energy absorbing properties of the steering wheel assembly of a motor vehicle, or of the relative merit of altemative designs of such assemblies, is a complex problem involving human tolerance, vehicle and occupant dynamics during an accident, and frequency and severity of injuries to various body areas. T\'lO fundamental approaches are being used currently for steering wheel assembly evaluations: laboratory impact tests of varying degrees of complexity, and simulated collision tests. This SAE Recommended Practice describes a simplified laboratory procedure for evaluating the characteristics of steering wheel assemblies under simulated driver impact conditions. Basically, the test procedure employs a torso shaped body block which is impacted against the steering wheel assembly and the transmitted load -time history is measured.

User’s Guide for the Six Month Old Infant Dummy (CRABI)

2017-11-08
CURRENT
J2854_201711
The CRABI dummy was developed to evaluate small child restraint systems in automotive crash environments, in all directions of impact, with or without air bag interaction Basic anthropometry for this test device was taken from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute Report 85-23. Weight distribution and scaling methods for the infant were approved by the Society of Automotive (SAE) Infant Dummy Task Group. The dummy weighs 17.2 pounds and has a 26.4 inches standing or 17.3 inches sitting height. The Hybrid Ill-like neck and lumbar spine are laterally notched to reduce lateral stiffness The shoulders have flesh support for durability and human-like performance in areas where seatbelt webbing may be placed. In addition, rubber elements are used in each joint to improve biofidelity and to give the CRABI infant-like range of motion. The CRABI Six-Month-Old design meets all the SAE Infant Dummy Task Group anthropometry, biomechanical and instrumentation requirements.

Lumbar Flexion Test Procedure for the Hybrid III 50th Male Dummy

2017-02-21
CURRENT
J3074_201702
This procedure establishes a recommended practice for performing a Lumbar Flexion test to the Hybrid III 50th Male Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD or crash dummy). This test was created to satisfy the demand from industry to have a certification test which characterizes the lumbar without interaction of other dummy components. In the past, there have not been any tests to evaluate the performance of Hybrid III 50th lumbar.

Hybrid Iii Family Chest Potentiometer Calibration Procedure

2000-06-30
HISTORICAL
J2517_200006
This procedure establishes a recommended practice for establishing the sensitivity of the chest displacement potentiometer assembly used in the Hybrid III family of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs, or crash dummies). This potentiometer assembly is used in the Hybrid III family to measure the linear displacement of the sternum relative to the spine (referred to as chest compression). An inherent non-linearity exists in this measurement because a rotary potentiometer is being used to measure a generally linear displacement. As the chest cavity is compressed the potentiometer rotates, however the relationship between the compression and the potentiometer rotation (and voltage output) is non-linear. Crash testing facilities have in the past used a variety of techniques to calibrate the chest potentiometer, that is to establish a sensitivity value (mm/(volt/volt) or mm/(mvolt/volt)).

Low Speed Knee Slider Test Procedure for the Hybrid III 50th Male Dummy

2015-05-07
CURRENT
J2876_201505
This procedure establishes a recommended practice for performing a Low Speed Knee Slider test to the Hybrid III 50th Male Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD or crash dummy). This test was created to satisfy the demand from industry to have a certification test which produces similar results to an actual low energy automotive impact test. An inherent problem exists with the current certification procedure because the normal (2.75 m/s) knee slider test has test corridors that do not represent typical displacements seen in these low energy impact tests. The normal test corridors specify a force requirement at 10 mm and at 18 mm, while the low speed test needs to have a peak displacement around 10 mm.
