The acceleration-time curves were used as input into a finite element model of the brain where maximum principal strain was calculated. The results from this study show that impact angle has an asymmetrical influence on headform dynamic responses and strain. An increase in impact angle tends to result in a growth of headform linear and rotational acceleration and maximum principal strain for the front location as well as the negative angles (0 to -15°) at the side, however varying trends were observed for the positive angles (from 0° to 15°) at the side. When developing sophisticated impact protocols and undertaking head injury reconstruction research, it is important to be aware of impact angle.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||ASTM International||Copyright (published version):||2014 ASTM International||Keywords:||Head impact angle; Hybrid III headform; Finite element analysis||DOI:||10.1520/STP155220120160||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Ashare, Alan; Ziejewski, Mariusz (eds.).
