Human model for safety two

Objective

The development of transport passive safety measures needs tools capable of predicting the injury risk of potential victims. Present tools (dummies) are limited in bio fidelity and application. The objective of this project is to develop human body numerical models representing a large range of the European population and allowing an accurate injury risk prediction. For that, an anthropometric database, a scaling tool and a positioning tool will be created to obtain the meshes of the 5th, 50th, 95th percentiles body in driving and standing positions. Data concerning muscle tone effect, soft tissues mechanical properties, internal organ interactions, injury mechanisms and whole body response to impact will be acquired. These biomechanical data will be stored in a database to be used to develop and validate the models. After validation, the capability of the developed models for injury prediction will be assessed in realistic impact situations including different transport modes.
