HUMAN HEAD-NECK KINEMATIC RESPONSE TO IMPACT ACCELERATION: COMPARISON OF OBLIQUE TO COMBINED FRONTAL AND LATERAL RESPONSE 2001-06-0127
This paper relates human oblique head-neck kinematics to human frontal and lateral head-neck kinematics for three subjects of varying anthropometry. Head-neck kinematic response to indirect impact acceleration for an oblique test is compared to the superposition of the head/neck behavior of appropriate frontal and lateral tests for the same subject. The results have important implications in terms of the complexity required in the design and validation of omni-directional biofidelic crash test manikins and mathematical models of human head-neck response.
