Biomechanical Injury Evaluation of Laminated Glass During Rollover Conditions 2002-01-1446

Significantly, more fatalities and serious injuries occur due to ejection in roll over accidents. The present study was conducted to determine the occupant retention and head-neck injury potential aspects of laminated glass in roll over accidents. The head injury and neck parameters were obtained from Hybrid III 50% male dummy test device impacting on various types of side windows with laminated glass. Results indicated that the glass contained the dummy assembly and the head neck biomechanical parameters were below the critical value injury tolerance limits in simulated rollover accidents.
