The BioRID-II dummy, representing a 50th percentile male, was originally developed by Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden and is produced by Humanetics. The BioRID-II was created to assess seat restraints in a rear impact after extensive testing on prior dummies indicated a lack of biofidelity. The BioRID-II’s distinguishing feature is its vertebral column, which consists of 24 separate vertebrae: 5 on lumbar spine, 12 on thoracic spine, and 7 on cervical spine.
The dummy model is validated by using material, component, full dummy certification, and sled tests.
Humanetics offers highly detailed and fully validated BioRID-II models in ANSYS LS-DYNA, PAM-CRASH, and RADIOSS Finite Element, codes.
