  1. 1. Car-To-Car Side Impacts: Development and Validation of Mathematical Models and their Usability for Protective System Design

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Bengt Pipkorn; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; car; side impact; mathematical simulations; occupant; dummy; injury criteria; padding; airbag; barrier;

    Abstract : The objective of the present work was to develop and use mathematical models to establish principles for protective systems for occupants in car-to-car side impacts. The efforts in this work have concentrated on the protection of the thorax and abdomen since these body parts are most frequently injured in side impacts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Physical Modeling of Brain and Head Kinematics

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Johan Ivarsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; brain injury; brain kinematics; free motion headform; head kinematics; lateral ventricles; padding materials; physical models; rotational acceleration; skull base; sulci;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  3. 3. Car-to-Car Side Impacts: Occupant Injuries, Test Methods, and the Development and Evaluation of Protective Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Yngve Håland; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1994]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics;

    Abstract : The present work addresses the problem of injuries following car-to-car side collisions. The injuries in this type of impact have been evaluated to form the basis for the development of test methods and for the principles of protective systems. Side impacts give rise to relatively more severe injuries than frontal impacts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Innovating Recycling of End-of-Life Cars

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Magnus Andersson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Recycling; Technological Innovation System; Material Flow Analysis; End-of-Life; Car; Vehicle; Scarce Metal; Critical Material;

    Abstract : There are currently a billion cars in use worldwide, and car design trends point at increasing variety in material utilisation. Cars today contain several types of steel and aluminium, an assortment of textiles and padding materials, and an increasing amount of polymers and scarce metals. READ MORE
