Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Evaluate performance of various Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) 5th and 95th Percentile Hybrid III Anthropometric Test Device (ATD) Finite Element (FE) models in spaceflight-like conditions

  1. Conduct sled tests of Hybrid III 5th and 95th percentile ATD in spaceflight-like conditions
  2. Simulate sled test runs with COTS FE models
  3. Compare responses between the physical ATD and model
  4. Determine model uncertainty factors for each model and response

Integration/Unique Aspects: Funded and managed by the NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC)
