Finite Element Human Model for Crashworthiness Simulation 1999-01-1906

Owing to the lack of biofidelity in mechanical dummy, the current trend is to utilize anatomic dummy models as a human surrogate in computer simulations involving automobile crash. The lack of biofidelity implies that mechanical dummies cannot adequately express crash injuries, which mainly consist of bone fracture and soft tissue damage. Accordingly, there is a pressing demand for an anatomic human model that can replace mechanical dummies in order to gain insight into the damage mechanisms and help establish tolerance limits for crash injuries.
