|Title:||Modelling and Accident Reconstruction of Head Impact Injuries||Authors:||Gilchrist, M. D.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5910||Date:||2003||Abstract:||This paper describes a computational mechanics framework within which the physiological consequences of an accidental head impact injury can be simulated. This method relies on a combined use of multibody dynamics and finite element analyses. Such a procedure could ultimately be used to assist in the clinical diagnosis of neurotrauma and in the design of optimised safety helmets.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Trans Tech Publications||Journal:||Key Engineering Materials||Volume:||245-246||Start page:||417||End page:||432||Copyright (published version):||2003 Trans Tech Publications||Keywords:||Head injury; Neurotrauma; Impact; Accident reconstruction||DOI:||10.4028/www.scientific.net/KEM.245-246.417||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
