Development of Finite Element Human Model for Events of Frontal Impact
Published May 19, 2010 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Spring Conference
Finite element human models (FE model) are developed worldwide to assess injury mechanisms caused by collisions by using numerical simulations. Bio-fidelity of the model is important in order to clarify the injury mechanisms with the model. In this report, a full body human FE model to assess injuries in an event of front impact is presented. Chest of the model was validated based on experimental results from component tests and table-top tests with Post Mortem Human Subjects (PMHS). Moreover, kinematics of full body of the model has been evaluated by results of impact sled tests with PMHS.
