This paper compares and contrasts the modeling features present in the MVMA2D and the MADYM02D occupant simulation models. Simulations of a series of sled tests with a Hybrid II test dummy restrained with a 3-point belt system have been conducted using the MADYM02D model. The simulation results agree with the test results.
