Study on the Relationship of Airbag Effect and Occupant Position


Article Preview

Computer simulation method is used to study the relations of airbag effect and occupant position. By changing the position of 50% dummy model to achieve the purpose of changing the position between airbag and occupant, three kinds of simulation test are made, and the simulation results are analyzed and compared. It is shown that between the belted occupant and airbag exists such a position or distance, at which the injury to occupant is the smallest when the traffic accident happens.
