ABSTRACT: The Hybrid III Rail Safety (H3-RS) anthropomorphic test device (ATD) is a crash test dummy developed in the United Kingdom to evaluate abdomen and lower thorax injuries that occur when passengers impact workstation tables during train accidents. The H3-RS is similar to the standard Hybrid III 50th Percentile Male ATD used in car crash test regulations worldwide, but with a more humanlike abdomen response under table edge loading conditions and with additional instrumentation to evaluate injury risk at multiple bilateral locations on the abdomen and thorax.
