  The StarBart is a ballast dummy that can be filled with water or other materials (e.g. sand) to simulate different weights and/or masses of one person in a test situation.

NEW: StarBart Junior
In co-operation with Renault we have developed a new junior dummy, who is 158mm shorter than the normal StarBart/SmartBart Dummy (please see PDF).

Great properties of the StarBart are:
• low net we
ight (15,5 kg)
• reusable and multifunctional
• modular design
• su
itable for all standard vehicle seat designs
• custom-designed overalls/protective covers available

There are various possibilities of testing situations in which the StarBart can be used.

In the area of vehicle/aerospace and air craft industry:
safety belt
roll-over bar
tire traction
acceleration
braking
accident simulation
space capsule

In the Military test field areas:
MOD boat and vehicle tests in England
Explosive destruction tests in GB and USA on cars and trucks

In the area of amusement parks:
roller coaster and other fairground rides
initial ride set-up
loading
restraints

In medical fields:
Wheelchair and chair lifts
Hospital bed/ mattress endurance tests
Patient transport and lifting tests

Other accident/damage tests:
• Winter sports/skiing accidents
• Pro7 Galileo film case studies: case test extreme water displacement experiment, case of gravity/vulnerability of the people involved
• Crash tests for safety harnesses (wind farm, forestry, electrical utility masts, leisure activities areas in general, etc.)

In addition the StarBart can be used for testing of various types of transportation, e.g. for tests of wheel chairs, chair lifts, boats, trucks, aircraft and elevators.

A great advantage of the StarBarts is the modular design. The modular assembly of single parts provides an easy handling. All single parts can separately be filled with water (or other material) and transported. On-site assembly the single parts is easy and therefore transportation problems due to weight and/or size are eliminated.

Often ballast testing is done with sandbags. However, the filling of the sandbags takes considerably more time than filling the StarBart with water. Due to the modular design the transportation of StarBarts is much more comfortable and prevents damage to the back of the persons having to carry it. Of course the StarBart is reusable and easy to store.

 
 
 
A StarBart completely filled with water has a weight of 79-80 kg. However, other materials can be used for filling. Each single part ot the Starbart has a fill and drainage hole through which the desired material can be filled in upto the required weight. The size of the StarBarts corresponds to that of a medium sized male person.
