The Design of a Pendulum Impact Test Device for Airbag Performance
A low cost, high reliability pendulum impact device is designed and set up with a gas generator and inflator, and a real deploy test is conducted with 45L drive airbags made of Nylon 66. The interaction between the dummy pendulum and the airbag in this simulation is recorded to observe and study the impact and injury to human body. The HIC is calculated and taken as an important basis for the evaluation of airbag performance. This test can also be used on the study and optimization of airbag fabrics.
