INFLUENCE OF THE BODY ON KINEMATIC AND TISSUE LEVEL HEAD INJURY PREDICTORS IN MOTORCYCLISTS ACCIDENTS

A number of Finite Element Analyses (FEA) were performed on a helmeted Hybrid III dummy and the helmeted detached head of the dummy both making impacts onto a flat anvil, in order toûinvestigate the effect of the body on head injury predictors founded on the kinematics of the head as well as the predictors defined at tissue level. For the latter, an FE model of the human head was employed. It was shown that for the impact velocity at which the helmet had been drop tested, and certified as per ECE 22.05, the helmet was unable to protect the head when the entire body was used in the virtual impact test. For the covering abstract see ITRD E143807.
