Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Determine the extensibility of the Test device for Human Occupant Restraint (THOR) and Hybrid III Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) Injury Assessment Reference Values (IARVs) to various environments and configurations

  1. Validate the response of each finite element model against matched physical ATD tests in the baseline seat from existing datasets.
  2. Quantify ATD and human numerical model response variance and sensitivity to a limited set of small perturbations in seat, and restraint initial conditions.
  3. Quantify the effects of spacecraft-specific seating and restraint configurations on ATD and human numerical model responses.
