The relationship between impact condition and velocity on brain tissue response (2011)

Abstract Injury reconstruction is a well accepted method forinvestigating the relationship between the event causing braininjury and the resulting trauma to neural tissue. Understandingthe effect of the impact characteristics and velocity on thebrain deformations is important when interpreting brain stressand strain values obtained from reconstructions. A finiteelement model (UCDBTM) was used to evaluate brain tissueresponse under varying impact conditions using anunhelmeted Hybrid III headform. This study was designed toevaluate the relationship between impact conditions andcorresponding brain tissue response variables. The resultsrevealed that the dynamic response curve created by differentimpacting conditions significantly influenced the maximumprincipal strain and Von Mises stress of brain tissue, providingvaluable insight in the limitations of accident reconstructionfrom descriptive data.
