  1. 1. Neck injuries in rear impacts : Dummy neck development, dummy evaluation and test condition specifications

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Astrid Linder; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Neck; Injury; Anthropometric dummy; Severity; Impact test; Rear end collision; Seat; Mathematical model; Velocity; Thesis; Optimization; Mathematical neck models; Rear impact tests; Biomechanics; Road: Components of the vehicle; Road: Components of the vehicle;

    Abstract : The objective of the work underlying this thesis was firstly to develop a neck for a new rear impact dummy, to evaluate the complete dummy and to specify test conditions for a consumer test with attention to AIS 1 neck injuries in rear impacts. In the development of the dummy neck, a mathematical neck model was developed and evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Child Safety in Car Crashes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Marianne Andersson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reconstructions; near-side; evaluations; frontal impact; rigid body; mathematical simulations; rear seat; finite elements; belt positioning booster; side impact; child safety; child seat;

    Abstract : Traffic related trauma is the most common cause of fatality and severe injury to children in developed countries. The majority of these fatalities and injuries are caused by frontal and side impacts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interaction between humans and car seats studies of occupant seat adjustment, posture, position, and real world neck injuries in rear-end impacts

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Bertil Jonsson; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Surgery; backset; Whiplash; rear-end impact; seated posture; seated position; bioRID; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Background: The latest generation of rear-end whiplash protection systems, as found in the WHIPS Volvo and SAHR Saab, have reduced injury rates by almost 50% in comparison with the previous generation of seat/head restraint systems. Occupant behaviour, such as seated posture and seat adjustment settings, may affect the injury risk. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Anna K Carlsson; [2012]
    Keywords : 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;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  5. 5. Whiplash Associated Disorders in Frontal and Rear-End Car Impacts - Biomechanical Guidelines and Evaluation Criteria based on Accident Data and Occupant Modelling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Lotta Jakobsson; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; neck injuries; rear-end impacts; frontal impacts; WHIPS; whiplash;

    Abstract : Whiplash associated disorders, also called whiplash injuries or AIS1 neck injuries, represent one of the most significant types of injury in car crashes regarding both frequency and long-term consequences. The injury mechanisms are not fully understood, thus making it difficult to design and evaluate protection systems in cars. READ MORE
