I-size regulations for child restraint systems: Comparative protocol study between R-44 and R-129

Although EU data show a reduction in road fatalities in recent years, children remain a vulnerable group of road users. Improving the kinematics and biomechanics considered in testing child restraint systems (CRS) can enhance the safety of child passengers in vehicles. Both anthropometry (i.e. measurements of the human body) and side impact need to be [...]

  • ASME Section IX

Why following ASME Section IX is not (always) enough

The ASME code is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that regulates the design, development and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. ASME Section IX specifies the requirements for the qualification of welders and the welding procedure specifications. There is a common misunderstanding that if you follow ASME Code Section IX requirements to [...]
