Side Impact Crash Test Dummies. The SID-IIs is currently the only existing 5th percentile sized side impact dummy. Its unique capabilities include the ability to measure individual thoracic and abdominal rib deflections and accelerations. This dummy is currently being tested to evaluate its biofidelity, durability, padding sensitivity, and repeatability. nearly right angle side impact in which the striking vehicle moves at kmph into the struck vehicle. In , NHTSA began testing passenger cars in side impact in the New Car Assessment Program ([email protected]). In the USA NCAP side impact, the striking vehicle is towed at a 8 kmph higher speed than in the compliance test. An analysis has begun on the. 5 Vehicle Selection 8 vehicles selected: l5 from list of vehicles to be selected for SINCAP l3 vehicles piggy-backed to R&D tests with ES-2 dummy The following considered when selecting vehicles: lDifficulty of correctly positioning rear SID dummy – exempt from side NCAP testing lPopular models lCovered various vehicle classes (2-dr. pass. cars, 4-dr.

Crashed Vehicle File Side impact case studies by Fildes et al [l] detailed vehicle crash parameters together with injury distributions for a sample of hospitalised and killed occupants in Australian crashes. These case studies were based on a sample of side impact crashes of passenger vehicles. Examples of vehicle tests are those done as part of the NCAP and lateral vehicle-to-vehicle impacts. Features of the interactive access tools include drill-down to detail views, support for plotting of the crash test signals, download of individual signals in either NHTSA UDS or ASCII X-Y (as tab separated values) format, and download of entire test data sets in either NHTSA UDS or. NOTE: Only data that has been reviewed and released from NHTSA/OCR's quality control process is available via this interface.

For side impact, NHTSA will maintain the current moving deformable barrier test at mph (63 kmph) but will update that test to include new side impact test dummies and new injury criteria that are used to assign a vehicle’s side impact star rating.

Impact Speed (kmph) Offset (%) Driver ATD Type: Driver Seat Position: Right Front Passenger ATD Type: Right Front Passenger Seat Position: Notes: TC Mercury Mystique.   Initially, the NHTSA only performed frontal-impact crash tests, pulling cars at a speed of 35 mph. Then, in , the organization introduced the side-impact test, followed in by rollover tests. But, although the NHTSA has modified how it’s reported its results over the years, the tests themselves haven’t really : Matthew Skwarczek.   NHTSA’s Proposed Side-Impact Testing Standard – the good, the bad and the interesting Based on tests and on average impact angle computed from the vehicle right rear sill velocities of MDB-to-vehicle crash tests, NHTSA selected a 10 degree impact angle as the most appropriate. NHTSA modified the test bench seat to incorporate child.
