AN OVERVIEW OF THE HUMAN-VEHICLE-ENVIRONMENT (HVE) HUMAN MODEL

Developers of human dynamics simulation software inherently use a mathematical/physical model to represent the human. This paper describes a pre-programmed, object-oriented human model for use in human dynamics simulations. This human model is included as part of an integrated simulation environment, called Human-Vehicle Environment (HVE). The paper first provides a general overview of the HVE user and develoment environments, and then provides detailed specifications for the HVE Human model. These specifications include definitions for model parameters (supported human types and human properties, such as dimensions, inertias, joints and injury tolerances).The paper provides also detailed specifications for the HVE time-dependent human output group parameters (kinematics, joints, contacts, belts and airbags). For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 875168.
