This paper describes testing and simulation of operator and truck kinematics during stand-up rider forklift truck accidents. A Hybrid III, ATD was used as an operator surrogate and tested in an off-the-dock accident experiment. A rigid multibody, biomechanical model, representing the ATD, was developed and validated with deceleration sled data. The biomechanical model was then used with a truck model in a simulation of the test. The kinematic results are in agreement with the testing. Various physical and initial conditions of the truck and biomechanical model were studied.
