Development of Hood Geometries for Pedestrian Head Impact 2008-36-0003

In order to reduce the injuries during the vehicle-pedestrian collisions some alternatives for energy absorption have been applied. On average 27% of the head impacts occur on the hood and generally a great part of these are fatal injuries. For this reason some alternatives to hood development have been applied to reduce the injuries.
This paper presents a comparative analysis for different hood Inner geometries. With this we are able to come to a conclusion about HPC influences, compare the head intrusion and reach a conclusion about the material influence for each hood inner geometry type.
