Lower Extremity (Task 2) sub of-Biomechanical Research Support
Using computational modeling, evaluate effect of subject anthropometry on lower extremity injury risk in crashes.
Development, validation, and application of a parametric finite element femur model
Older, obese, and female occupants have higher risk of serious lower-extremity injuries in frontal crashes. Optimizing vehicle restraints to better protect these vulnerable populations requires finite element (FE) models of the human body that consider the variations in skeletal geometry, body size...
