Two anthropometric test devices have been developed to simulate two different portions of the head - these are the frontal bone of the cranium and a typical facial bone. These forms are intended for eventual use in evaluating the crash-worthiness of automotive hardware. This project concentrated on duplicating the fracture behavior of the bone structure; no attempt was made to develop a skin simulant.
The creation of a facial bone test device is a more challenging philosophical problem than the headform. A test form which geometrically matches the complete facial skeleton may be too complex to serve as a practical test device. A form which typifies the more prominent facial bones is suggested as being more suitable for near future usage.
