An injury risk curve for the hip for use in frontal impact crash testing
To facilitate the assessment of hip injury risk in frontal motor-vehicle crashes, an injury risk curve that relates peak force transmitted to the hip to the probability of hip fracture was developed by using survival analysis to fit a lognormal distribution to a recently published dataset of hip...
Adolescent motor vehicle crash risk what's needed to understand and reduce the risk?.
Motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) pose the largest threat to adolescent health in the US, yet until recently [1], books on adolescent health risks did not cover MVCs and other unintentional injuries. Despite this seeming lack of attention, research on teen MVCs has seen a robust evolution, with...
Survival in fatal road crashes body mass index, gender, and safety belt use.
Background: This study evaluated the associations of body mass index (BMI), gender, and use of safety belts with the survival of drivers involved in fatal road crashes. Method: The census data of all U.S. fatal crashes that did not involve pedestrians, bicyclists, or motorcyclists were examined for...
Vehicle kinematics in turns and the role of cornering lamps in driver vision
SAE Recommended Practice J852 and ECE Regulations 119 and 48 for cornering lamps were compared. Photometric points described in each specification were then compared to naturalistic lowspeed turn trajectories produced by 87 drivers. Future locations of a vehicle engaged in a turn were calculated...
The development of a model to predict the effects of worker and task factors on foot placements in manual material handling tasks
Accurate prediction of foot placements in relation to hand locations during manual materials handling tasks is critical for prospective biomechanical analysis. To address this need, the effects of lifting task conditions and anthropometric variables on foot placements were studied in a laboratory...
