Sensitivity analysis of occupant posture at t0 on the injury risk in a selected crash load case for the purpose of functional validation of integral occupant protection systems Beschreibung: A reliable procedure for functional validation is key for evaluating the protection afforded by integral occupant protection systems already at an early stage of development. In state-of-the-art validation procedures the occupant is seated in a ‘standard position’ at t0, which makes functional validation straightforward and assessable through conventional and well-established experimental methods like crash tests. A functional validation for non-standard seating postures at t0 through conventional methods, though, is not feasible. The aim of this project is to establish a method which is able to assign criticality to initial occupant postures. Eventually the method will form the basis for the functional validation of integral occupant protection systems.
