This paper looks at numerical modelling techniques, namely multibody body dynamics and finite element methods, in order to reconstruct two real-life accident cases arising from falls. Various modelling strategies are explored, and the results are compared with existing published brain injury tolerance levels.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Springer-Verlag||Copyright (published version):||Springer-Verlag||Keywords:||Impact biomechanics;Falls;Multibody dynamics;Accident reconstruction;Head injury;Finite element modelling||DOI:||10.1007/1-4020-3796-1_44||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Gilchrist, Michael (ed.).
