The research paper presented here is the result of an investigation by a medical-engineering team. The study applies techniques of experimental automobile-collision injury analysis to human injuries resulting from accidental collisions.
The accident characteristics, observed injury patterns, and human kinematics are presented and analyzed. The study emphasizes injuries sustained from windshield glass. Present glass characteristics are discussed and suggestions based on the cases presented are made regarding future glass technology.
