The model-based HIC 15 of the 55 YO FHBM was 12% lower than that of the HIII50 when all cases were considered.
However, the y- and z-displacements of the FHBM head were greater compared to those of the HIII50 in both loading cases.
The 55 YO FHBM neck responses were lower than those of the HIII50.
As Figures 11 and 12 illustrate the 55 YO FHBM normalized chest deflections were 92% and 70% higher than those of the HIII50 when all loading cases and belt-and-airbag cases were considered, respectively.
The 55 YO FHBM 3 ms acceleration clips and peak chest accelerations were 21 and 44% higher than those of the HIII50, respectively when all loading cases were considered.
The 55 YO FHBM peak pelvis accelerations were similar to those of the HIII50 when all loading cases were considered.
The 55 YO FHBM peak left femur axial forces were 85% lower than those of the HIII50.
The HIII50 moved to the left about 25 mm whereas, the FHBM moved to the right around 7 mm.
The 55 YO FHBM left and right foot accelerations were 14% lower than those of the HIII50.
The 55 YO FHBM shoulder belt forces were 12% higher than those of the HIII50 (see Figure A16).
Correlated age-dependent FHBM and HIII50 FE models were used to simulate matched-condition frontal sled impacts at different restraints, speeds, and severities.
