Analysis of a Real-World Crash Using Finite Element Modeling to Examine Traumatic Rupture of the Aorta
The objective of this study is to investigate TRA mechanisms using finite element (FE) simulations of reconstructed real-world accidents involving aortic injury. For this application, a case was obtained from the William Lehman Injury Research Center (WLIRC), which is a Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) center. ...The method proposed in this study allowed simulation of a real-world accident. The method involved two phases. First, the car-to-car interaction was simulated using car FE models.
