COMPARISON BETWEEN IN-THE-FIELD ACCIDENTS AND RECONSTRUCTED ACCIDENTS WITH DUMMIES AND WITH CADAVRES

By accurately reconstituting accidents whose parameters are well known from multidisciplinary accident investigation, it is possible to associate forces and accelerations values with injuries sustained by occupants involved in in-the- field accidents. In this study, two in-the-field accidents, their reconstruction conducted by using dummies as occupants, and their reconstruction then with human cadavers are analysed. These accident reconstructions allow to associate and compare accident occupants' injuries with acceleration forces, injuries criteria values measured on dummies, and, on the other hand, accelerations, injuries criteria values, and injuries sustained by cadavers during the second accident reconstruction.
