Recent studies indicate that front barrier testing is only one of several considerations in evaluating the effectiveness of occupant protection systems. This information-packed publication discusses current test procedures in light of advancing technology, examining how occupant protection systems will be evaluated in the future. Partial contents include: essential requirements for an effective full scale frontal impact test; are barrier crashes sufficient for evaluating air bag sensor performance; the prediction of hybrid III manikin head-neck kinematics and dynamics; energy dissipated in vehicle crush~a study using the repeated test technique; and more.
