A Design and build motorcycle dummy crash test human body in thailand
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this research is to design a prototype of a male dummy chest for motorcycle crash tests. The primary criteria discussed in this study are based on the unique features of Thai ergonomic body sizes with an age range of the highest fatal rate and the fundamental design of the Hybrid III 50th percentile male crash test dummy. A comprehensive experimental study of crash behavior of the prototype undergoing axial compressive loading is performed using the mutual procedure of cadaveric chest testing. For design criteria, the largest chest deflection of 80 mm, the maximum acceleration of 38.47g and the absorbed energy of 178.369 Joules are considered in the experiment. The obtained results show a good agreement with the experimental data of other researches, in which the capability of the energy absorption depends on impact velocities. In addition, the energy absorption capability of this prototype can accurately assess an injury level under AIS 3+. For this reason, the first prototype of a male chest dummy is particularly suitable for an assessment of a lower serious injury level in a motorcycle crash test.
