Lower Limb Modeling and Side Impact Injury Analysis of Pedestrians with Different Percentiles 2022-01-7130

To solve the problems of ethnic size difference and model simplification in existing research, three kinds of lower limb finite element models of adult male with percentile 5, 50 and 95 were established based on the size characteristics of Chinese human body.The bionic reliability of the models was verified according to three different lower limb biomechanical experiments. Through the simulation analysis of pedestrian lower limb with different percentiles in side impact, it was found that in the pedestrian low-speed side impact accident, the lower percentile human body has a higher risk of lower limb injury,especially the injury of knee joint. The soft foam structure can play a better cushioning and energy absorption role in the impact process. The response parameters decrease with the decrease of percentile.In addition,the soft foam can significantly reduce the risk of lower limb injuries when impacting the lower limbs laterally at low speed.
