Abstract:
A sled-to-sled subsystem side impact test methodology has been developed by using two sleds at the WSU Bioengineering Center in order to simulate a car-to-car side impact, particularly in regards to the door velocity profile. Initially this study concentrated on tailoring door pulse to match the inner door velocity profile from FMVSS 214 full-scale dynamic side impact tests. This test device simulates a pulse quite similar to a typical door velocity of a full size car in a dynamic side impact test. Using the newly developed side impact test device three runs with a SID dummy were performed to study the effects of door padding and spacing in a real side impact situation. This paper describes the test methodology to simulate door intrusion velocity profiles in side impact and discusses SID dummy test results for different padding conditions.
