Abstract [en]

The thorax is the most frequently injured body region in frontal impacts. This study aimed to compare the THORAX Demonstrator THOR and HIII injury risk predictions in relation to expected injury risk reductions based on trends observed in real life data.   Sled tests were performed in a body‐in‐white representing a mid‐sized family car. To relate the test results to real life, the AIS3+ thoracic injury risks measured by the THOR and HIII were compared for different test configurations. For the driver position a 6 kN belt was compared to a 4 kN belt plus airbag and a 3 kN belt plus airbag (same pulse). On the passenger side the same restraint in EuroNCAP ODB (64 km/h) and FMVSS 208 ODB (40 km/h) tests were evaluated. Injury criteria compared were Cd and DEQ(Lin) for the HIII and Dmax, Dc‐THOR and strain for the THOR.   The level of thoracic injury risk needs further investigation, but the expected injury risk reduction from a predicted high to a low risk was demonstrated by THOR, contrary to the HIII. The large variations in injury risk as well as the sensitivity to crash severity indicate that the THOR dummy should be the preferred tool for evaluation of frontal impact occupant protection.
