Development of Injury Criteria and Measurement Procedure for the Thigh and Leg of a Pedestrian Dummy

Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
Injury criteria for the thigh and leg of a pedestrian dummy were determined by comparing section bending moments due to pedestrian lateral impact between FE human and dummy models. A procedure to calculate section bending moment using longitudinal strain data from multiple strain gages affixed to the femur and tibia sections was established. The procedure was validated by comparing the bending moment form the strain data and that from support forces in quasi-static, 3-point bending tests.
