Periodic Report - THORAX (Thoracic injury assessment for improved vehicle safety)

Project ID: 218516
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


This is the publishable summary of the EU-funded 'THORAX' project, which aimed to develop the required understanding in thoracic injury mechanisms and to implement this into tools that would enable the design and evaluation of advanced vehicle restraint systems offering optimal protection for a wide variety of car occupants.

The document firstly provides an overview of the project background and then focuses on the undertaken accident analysis. The elaborated biomechanics studies are also presented, as well as the identified injury criteria. The document then summarises the identified future activities and closes with the derived THORAX conclusions.
