At Calspan, we use a 12” HYGE impact simulator sled to simulate crash events. For this type of testing, fixtures are attached to a carriage that rides on a set of rails. These fixtures, which are used in conjunction with the product being tested, may be an automobile’s body (commonly referred to as a Body-In-White), automotive seats or benches built to a standard for the evaluation of child restraint systems (i.e., child car seats).
This position is responsible for preparing and executing individual component and full scale vehicle crash simulation tests on a HYGE Sled.
