Anthropometry for WorldSID : A world-harmonized midsize male side impact crash dummy Moss, S et al

By: Moss, SPublication details: Warrendale, PA Society of Automotive Engineers, 2000; SAE technical paper 2000-01-2202, Description: 11 sSubject(s): Anthropometric dummy | Sideways collision | USA | 913 | 85Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: The WorldSID project is a global effort to design a new generation side impact crash test dummy under the direction of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The first WorldSID crash dummy will represent a world-harmonized mid-size adult male. This paper discusses the research and rationale undertaken to define the anthropometry of a world standard midsize male in the typical automotive seated posture. Various anthropometry databases are compared region by region and in terms of the key dimensions needed for crash dummy design. The Anthropometry for Motor Vehicle Occupants (AMVO) dataset, as established by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), is selected as the basis for the WorldSID mid-size male, updated to include revisions to the pelvis bone location. The proposed mass of the dummy is 77.3 kg with full arms. The rationale for the selected mass is discussed. The joint location and surface landmark database is appended to this paper.
