This paper describes a series of projects launched during the last 15 years to develop finite element dummy models. The activities have been initiated and guided by the working group of the German Association for Automotive Research (FAT). The projects result in various finite element dummy models, which are frequently used world wide in the development of Restraint Systems. The paper summarizes the methods adopted and gives an overview on the models and its continuous enhancements.
