Rapport d'expertise sur contrat en libre accès; This report is a follow-up of the EEVC report Q10 Dummy Report - Advanced Child Dummies and Injury Criteria for Frontal Impacts? published in January 2015 [1]. The Q-dummies were designed for both front and side impact test procedures but the main priority and focus in the development has been on frontal impacts. The work described in this report covers the use of the Q10 dummy in side impacts and is based largely on work done in the FP7 EPOCh project (Enabling Protection for Older Children, 2009-2011 [2]) and third party testing with the baseline Q10 dummy as used for frontal impacts as well as the of a special designed side impact kit for the Q10 dummy in the shoulder region. An overview of child injury causation for older children in side impacts is presented in Chapter 2, which comprises a synthesis of accident data sources that have been examined in the CREST and EPOCh projects.
