Developing Experimental Cervical Dummy Models for Testing Low-Speed, Rear-End Collisions
Published May 31, 1998 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
In recent years, many studies have been made in the biomechanical and other fields on, "whiplash" or cervical vertical sprain which is one type of injury sustained by vehicle occupants in low-speed, rear-end collisions.
This paper describes a cervical analysis of whiplash occurring in the lower rear-end collision. In particular, it describes the use of a more humanized biomechanical cervical model to analyze cervical behavior in low rear-end collisions. The results of tests with this model were verified on the TRID-II Neck and the Hybrid III Neck models.
