Injury biomechanics: Duane Cronin and Rob Salzar

June 26, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

An important outcome from impact biomechanics research is protection of the human body from serious injury. Explicit finite element modeling can provide detailed insight into impact response at the tissue level, depending on the level of detail in the model, and identify the importance of different tissues in terms of response and the potential for injury. Biofidelic numerical models require accurate geometry, material properties, and representative loading conditions to provide meaningful forecasts of kinematic and kinetic response. This seminar will discuss the essential inputs required to develop a model and the importance of verification and validation using examples from blast, ballistic and vehicle safety.
