Dynamic Strength of Top Tether Anchorages in Various Anchor Locations

Principal InvestigatorYun Seok KangPhD, Ohio State University

 

Below is an executive summary of this project. Please note that this summary describes results and interpretation that may not be final. Final interpretation of results will be in the peer-reviewed literature.

 

The data obtained in this study will provide an idea of the dynamic strength of LATCH anchorages with the new NHTSA requirements, when considering different locations of the anchorages (especially tether anchor locations) and different CRS uses (i.e. different weights). Results from this study will allow CRS engineers to optimally design CRSs and increase the safety of a child in a child restraint using the LATCH system.

This project is currently ongoing. Findings will be published here when the project is complete.
