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

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Shiyang Meng; Svein Kleiven; Peter Halldin; Mazdak Ghajari; [2019]
    Keywords : 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;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  2. 2. Finite Element Modeling of the Human Head

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Svein Kleiven; [2002]
    Keywords : Finite element method FEM ; Human head; brain; head injury; epidemiology; statistics; simulations.;

    Abstract : The main objectives of the present thesis were to define the dimension of head injuries in Sweden over a longer period and to present a Finite Element (FE) model of the human head which can be used for preventive strategies in the future. The annual incidence of head injuries in Sweden between 1987 and 2000 was defined at over 22 000, cases most of which were mild head injuries. READ MORE

  3. 3. An Average Female Head-Neck Finite Element Model with Reflexive Neck Muscles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : I Putu Alit Putra; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Human Body Model; Active Neck Muscle; Whiplash Injury; Finite Element;

    Abstract : Several factors potentially contribute to the risk of whiplash injuries; one of them is the neck muscle activities. Muscle activities in the neck have been shown to influence the head-neck kinematics during whiplash-like rear impacts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Generation of Patient Specific Finite Element Head Models

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Johnson Ho; Svein Kleiven; Michael Gilchrist; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Injury Prevention; Patient Specific; Finite Element Head Model; Anatomical Structures; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a great burden for the society worldwide and the statisticsindicates a relative constant total annual rate of TBI. It seems that the present preventativestrategies are not sufficient. To be able to develop head safety measures against accidents ine.g. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE
