  1. 1. Head Injuries in Car-to-Pedestrian Accidents - Investigation of Head Impact Dynamics, Injury Mechanisms and Countermeasures

    Författare :Jianfeng Yao; [2010]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accident analysis; head injury; head protection; mathematical simulation; accident reconstruction; injury mechanism; Pedestrian accident;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study was to investigate head impact dynamics and to establish risk functions for head injuries by mathematical reconstructions of real-world car-to-pedestrian accidents. Furthermore, an attempt was made to develop an approach for the design and evaluation of head-protective devices. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Physical Modeling of Brain and Head Kinematics

    Författare :Johan Ivarsson; [2002]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; brain injury; skull base; rotational acceleration; physical models; lateral ventricles; head kinematics; padding materials; sulci; free motion headform; brain kinematics;

    Sammanfattning : The development of head injury criteria and countermeasures for head protection requires understanding of how different factors affect brain and head kinematics. In this thesis, 2D physical models of the human head were developed and used to evaluate how various factors affect brain kinematics during angular head kinematics. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Towards improved motorcycle helmet test methods for head impact protection Using experimental and numerical methods

    Detta är en avhandling från KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Shiyang Meng; Svein Kleiven; Peter Halldin; Mazdak Ghajari; [2019]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Head Injuries; Helmet; Injury Prevention; Motorcycle; Test Standard; Finite Element Method; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Sammanfattning : Head injury is the leading cause of death and major trauma for users of powered two-wheelers (PTWs). Helmet use can prevent and reduce head injuries when a crash is inevitable. However, today’s motorcycle helmets do not protect equally against all types of head injuries. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Prevention of Head Injuries - focusing Specifically on Oblique Impacts

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Farkost och flyg

    Författare :Magnus Aare; [2003]
    Nyckelord :head injury; helmets; oblique impacts; FEM;

    Sammanfattning : The massive number of injuries sustained in trafficaccidents is a growing problem worldwide, especially indeveloping countries. In 1998, more than one million peoplewere killed in traffic accidents worldwide, while about tentimes as many people were injured. LÄS MER
