  1. 1. Initial Studies of Dynamic Responses of Female and Male Volunteers in Rear Impact Tests

    Författare :Anna K Carlsson; [2010]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamic response; rear impact; response corridors; volunteers; crash test; neck injury; whiplash; females;

    Sammanfattning : Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD) - commonly denoted whiplash injury - resulting from vehicle impacts, is a worldwide epidemic. These injuries occur at relatively low changes of velocity (typically between 10-25 km/h) and in impacts from all directions. Rear impacts are however the most common in the accident statistics.

  2. 2. Volontärerna Internationellt hjälparbete från missionsorganisationer till volontärresebyråer

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Cecilia Jonsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; volontourism; international aid work; volunteers; organizational field; the grand tour; volontärresor; volontärer; volontärresebyråer; hjälparbete; internationellt hjälparbete; missionärer; NGO:s; hjälporganisationer; ideella organisationer; organisatoriska fält; bildningsresa; Socialt arbete; Social Work;

    Sammanfattning : A new form of foreign travel called “voluntourism” has emerged in Sweden. In advertisements that invite to “make a difference”, travel agencies promote short- term aid opportunities at for example orphanages or schools in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. International volunteer work is nothing new. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Addressing Female Whiplash Injury Protection - A Step Towards 50th Percentile Female Rear Impact Occupant Models

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Anna K Carlsson; [2012]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; anthropometry; dynamic response; head restraint; dummy; volunteers; whiplash; female; crash test; rear impact; neck injury; occupant model;

    Sammanfattning : Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD) – commonly denoted whiplash injury – to vehicle occupants involved in collisions, is of worldwide concern. These injuries occur at relatively low velocity changes, typically between 10–25 km/h, and in all impact directions. Rear impacts are, however, the most common in the accident statistics. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Evaluation of Shoulder-Complex Motion in Frontal and Oblique Impact Loadings - A Comparison between Frontal Impact Dummies and the Human Body

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Fredrik Törnvall; [2004]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sled tests; Cadaver; Volunteers; Kinematics; Hybrid III; Static loading; Shoulder range-of-motion; Offset frontal collision; THOR; Shoulder; Biofidelity; Oblique frontal collision; Crash test dummy; Post Mortem Human Subjects PMHS ;

    Sammanfattning : Offset and angled frontal impacts represent a crash type that is more common than full-frontal collisions. Several studies have shown that over 70% of all frontal impacts are offset or oblique. LÄS MER

  5. 5. A New Shoulder for the THOR Dummy Intended for Oblique Collisions

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Fredrik Törnvall; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shoulder; Shoulder range-of-motion; Volunteers; Kinematics; Biofidelity; Post Mortem Human Subjects; THOR; Crash test dummy; Oblique collision;

    Sammanfattning : Offset and oblique frontal car collisions represent a type of crash in which severe and fatal injuries frequently occur. This indicates the importance of having protective systems in vehicles for these types of collisions. LÄS MER
