Understanding the effect of the impact characteristics and velocity on the brain deformations is important when interpreting brain stress and strain values obtained from reconstructions. A finite element model (UCDBTM) was used to evaluate brain tissue response under varying impact conditions using an unhelmeted Hybrid III headform. This study was designed to evaluate the relationship between impact conditions and corresponding brain tissue response variables. The results revealed that the dynamic response curve created by different impacting conditions significantly influenced the maximum principal strain and Von Mises stress of brain tissue, providing valuable insight in the limitations of accident reconstruction from descriptive data.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||International Society of Biomechanics||Copyright (published version):||2011 the authors||Keywords:||Brain tissue||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||ISB 2011 Brussels, Belgium, July 3-7, 2011|
