Evaluation of Thor Dummy Prototype Performance in Hyge Sled Tests
Published May 31, 1998 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
The THOR-50M dummy being developed as the next-generation dummy for frontal impacts was leased out by NHTSA. This was mounted on a white body of a compact passenger car, and analyzed mainly were motions under relatively severe impact conditions using a HYGE sled at JARI. The characteristics of the THOR dummy were obtained by comparing the results with those of the HyIII dummy evaluated at 30 mph speed under three test conditions: an airbag only, a 3P seat belt only, and a 3P seat belt with an airbag system.
