This book focuses on new developments in automotive safety related test methodologies. Included are component test methodologies for side impact simulation airbag subsystems, material characterization for safety CAE, and applications of instrumentation to dummy/structural safety systems. Complete contents include: development of a door test facility for implementing the door component test methodology; development of a sled-to-sled subsystem side impact test methodology; sled testing procedure for side impact airbag development; apparatus and method for side impact testing; experimental devices to simulate toepan and floorpan intrusion; measurement techniques for angular velocity and acceleration in an impact environment; testing options available for head impact protection development; a procedure for quantifying the effective leak area of a full size airbag; permeability and transient thermal response of airbag fabrics; high strain-rate tensil tesitng of door trim materials; impact response of foam composites; and the testing corridors for neck calibration of the child dummy.
