Mathematical Evaluation of the Head Impact Risk on a Given Part of a Vehicle, as Regards Pedestrians 830059

This paper is related to the pedestrians struck by a vehicle.
From the results of multiple runs performed with a previously validated mathematical model, an equation is defined which describes the trajectories of their heads.
When the distribution in heights of the pedestrians and the distribution in speeds of the colliding vehicles are taken into account, this equation enables the prediction of the head impact probability for the sundry areas of the front end of the vehicle, according to its profile.
