This paper presents experimentaland numerical analysis of dummy neck forcrashworthiness assessment. The dummy neck was developed using flexible material, silicone rubber and rigid body material, mild steel. The design of the dummy neck is based on the measurement data on neck length and neck circumference that has been taken from Asia child and statistical analysis has been done to obtain the desired measurement. The dummy neck is connected with load cell at the upper and lower neck to simulate the force acting on child neck at C0 and C7 bone. Comparison has been made between the experimental and numerical simulation analysis for static load condition on dummy neck. Results from numerical simulation and experimental showed a good agreement.
