EvaRID: a dummy model representing females in rear end impacts
Paper i proceeding, 2010

The Seventh Framework project ADSEAT (Adaptive Seat to Reduce Neck Injuries for Female and Male Occupants) aims at establishing the properties for a model of an average female and to implement those in a computational model in order to provide an improved tool for the development and evaluation of adaptive systems with special focus on protection against whiplash injuries. As such the project will result in a computational model of a female, in addition to the male model that already exists, for low severity testing. Both the female and the male model will then be used in be used in studies to design and evaluate adaptive seat systems that provide enhanced neck injury protection. This paper will present the first version of the female dummy model, called EvaRID, as developed during the first year of the ADSEAT project. Background information on the size selection, anthropometry and the scaling method used will be described. The performance of the EvaRID V1.0 release is shown by comparing simulation results with volunteer data.
