AN IMPROVED HUMAN DISPLAY MODEL FOR OCCUPANT CRASH SIMULATION PROGRAMS

An improved three-dimensional display model of a human being which can be used to display the results of three-dimensional simulation programmes that predict the positions of an occupant during impact of a vehicle was presented. The model allows the user to view the occupant from any orientation in any position during the crash. The display model assumes the usual break up of the body into rigid segments which is normal for occupant crash simulation programmes, but the shape of the segments in the display model are not necessarily the same as those used in the crash simulation. The display model is proportioned so as to produce a realistic drawing of the human body in any position. Joints connecting the segments are also drawn to improve realism. /Author/TRRL/
