Crash test dummy impact measurement

Crash Test Dummy Impact Pressure

Measure crash test dummy impact force. Identify the temporal, local, peak, and spatial pressures of two objects colliding.

High Speed Impact Testing Using Pressure Distribution

The I-Scan® force and pressure mapping system can be used in crash test dummy studies to capture the dynamic pressure and impact force that are exerted during an impact. I-Scan can identify the temporal, local, peak, and spatial pressures of two objects colliding. With scanning speeds at up to 20 kHz, even extremely rapid strikes can be recorded.

This information can be used to create safer cars, bolster dashboard and restraint design, and minimize injury. Sensors are available in different shapes, are reusable, and provide accurate pressure readings. With the help of Tekscan's highly qualified sales and engineering support team, each system may be configured to meet your specific needs.
