Crash test simulation using finite-element method is more and more popular in the automobile industry because of its feasibility and cost saving. The majority of finite element dummy models used in crash simulation are built based on anthropometrical and biomechanical data of the USA and European bodies. Thus, it is necessary to develop a scaling algorithm to scale a reference dummy size into a desired one without rebuilding the entire model. In this paper, the Hybrid III dummy model provided by LS-DYNA software is scaled to suit Vietnamese biomechanical characteristics. Then a standard criterion for head injuries called HIC is introduced. In addition, the Hybrid III dummy model is validated by comparing experimental data with simulation results obtained from computer model.
