Modelling and Accident Reconstruction of Head Impact Injuries (2003)

Abstract This paper describes a computational mechanics framework within which the physiological consequences of an accidental head impact injury can be simulated. This method relies on a combined use of multibody dynamics and finite element analyses. Such a procedure could ultimately be used to assist in the clinical diagnosis of neurotrauma and in the design of optimised safety helmets.
