Description / Abstract:
This SAE Information Report prescribes dummies, procedures, and
configurations that can be used for
investigating the interactions that might occur between a deploying
airbag and a child restrained
by a child restraint system (CRS). During the inflation process,
airbags generate a considerable
amount of kinetic energy which can result in substantial forces being
applied to a child who is
restrained in a CRS in the front seat of a vehicle. Field data
collected by the special crash
investigation team of the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) indicate that
fatal forces can be developed. In response to these field data, NHTSA
added a series of
airbag/child interaction tests and limits to the Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR 571.208) that
deal with occupant protection, commonly known as Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards (FMVSS
208). The bases for NHTSA tests are the various test procedures that
were developed by the
International Standards Organization (ISO) and the Society of
Automotive Engineers (SAE). This
document was one of those reports.
