Recent field data analyses have shown that the efficacy of restraint system for small female front-seated occupant protection is less remarkable than that for midsize males in motor vehicle crashes (MVCs). The objective of the study is to identify the major parameters of restraint system that have significant influence on responses of front-seat small female occupants andimprove the efficacy of restraint system for small female occupants using optimization method.The results suggest that parameters of restraint system have greater influence on headresponsesand less influence onchestresponses for front row occupants. For driver and front passenger, dominating factors for responses of each body region are different. For restrained driver, the main source of chest injury is the airbag, whilethe main source of chest injury is the seat beltfor restrained front passenger.After parameteroptimization, injury risks of head and neck for restrained front row occupantshave decreased, and the Euro-NCAP score of front row restraint increased by 37.3%.
