Pedestrian impact test procedures allow tolerances on test conditions of impact such as mass of the impactor, impactor position, impact speed etc. The variation in these parameters affects the injury measurements in a test.
This paper focuses on sensitivity study of variations in these parameters, within specified tolerances, on head form impact and lower leg impact injury measurements.
The aim of this sensitivity study is to find out the most influencing test parameter for the injuries. The exercise was carried out using Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulations.
