Test results on the Counter Balanced Motion (CBM) SEAT Crashworthiness

This paper reports injury load HYGE sled test data and Madymo crash simulation data, all with a Hybrid III 50%ile male dummy. Six frontal crashes and two rear impacts were performed to determine the effect that the CBM Seat has on injury load data in direct comparison to the original equipment seats (OES), The CBM Seat is designed to increase containment angle to eliminate submarining during a crash {1}. In general, the aim of the present study is to determine the effect that the CBM Seat has on the dummy's injury load values compared to the same set up with OES...
