Computational Analysis of Performance of Inflatable Toepan Padding for Mitigating Lower Limb Injuries 2004-01-0837

The performance of inflatable toepan padding for mitigating lower limb injuries was investigated. A rigid multi-body model was used to describe the scenario of an occupant in an automobile frontal crash with toepan intrusion. The emphasis was placed on the lower limb responses during impact. The interaction between the lower limbs and the inflatable toepan padding was described by the contact between the feet and the load distribution plate of the padding. Computational simulations were performed to analyze the effects of the controlled motion of this plate on the lower limb impact responses.
