Human Factors, Injury Causation, and Animation 930902
Methods for animating human factors and injury causation information are presented. The problem is seen as one of correlating the information from pre-impact, impact, and post-impact motions of the vehicle with the anthropomorphic and injury causation data. Two statistical analyses of occupant injury are reviewed in preparation for animation. The finite element analysis of the human body is seen as an accurate foundation for occupant injury animations.
