Road vehicles - Test procedures for evaluating out-of-position vehicle occupant interactions with deploying side air bags
|Publication Date:||15 December 2012|
|ICS Code (Road vehicles in general):||43.020|
This Technical Report outlines test procedures for evaluating the effects of the interactions between deploying side air bags (SAB) and vehicle occupants. The in-position test procedures are referred to in other ISO international standards, such as, full-vehicle pole crash tests (ISO 15829)and instrumented arm evaluations (ISO 15827). Out-of-position vehicle occupant test procedures are described in this Technical Report.
This Technical Report describes dummies, procedures, instrumentation and test configurations that can be used for investigating the interactions that occur between a deploying side air bag and a vehicle occupant in front and rear seats. Air bags may deploy from the door or side trim panel, the armrest, the seat back or cushion, the roof support pillars, and the roof rail area. Occupants can range in size from young children through very large adults. These test procedures are sufficiently broad to cover these areas. Static tests are used for these evaluations, since external forces do not accelerate the vehicle buck.
