Federal regulations for the design of seat belts, air bags and crush into the occupant space. Injuries to internal organs,
cervical, thorax and lumbar spine. Head face, eye and brain injury determination. Long bone, rib fractures, feet, arms and
knee injuries. The use of padding and the prevention of hard contact zones predicted in the Biomechanics of the collision.
Federal standards required for testing the vehicle and components' designs and compliance. Data bases available for Biomechanics
analysis for low impact velocities and barrier impact testing using instrumental dummies.
Low Speed Collision, Biomechanics & Whiplash-SAE, 1996
Whiplash, permanent and temporary injures, soft tissue injures from low impact collisions. Analysis methods to determine
injury thresholds from vehicle components and damage. Low impact collision demonstration, video demonstration of body
TEEX - (Texas A & M) Biomechanics for Traffic Accident Reconstruction, 1998
Vehicular impacts mechanics, occupant movement within the vehicle, interior assessment of points of impact, data for injury
evaluation based upon impact force and duration of time. Effect of restraints - air bags and seat belts in roll over, air bag deployment,
time, position, and occupant movement. Post accident injury analysis from photos, x-rays, MRI data and autopsy reports.
AAAM- (University of Maryland Medical School) Biomechanics of Impact Trauma, 1998
Biomechanics analysis based upon impact trauma and vehicle design and performance to determine the injury mechanics of the
human anatomy. Injury data from physical testing and computer modeling has been tabulated to provide thresholds of injury to
the skeleton and the bodies internal organs, cervical injury due to whiplash, blunt trauma to the head, thorax and ribs cage, internal
organs, face and eyes. Brain injuries caused from acceleration and impacts to the head can be determined and evaluated by
engineering analysis and accident reconstruction based upon the vehicle collision, the vehicles' design, damage and injury mechanics.
University of California School of Medicine, Accidental Injury: Biomechanics & Prevention, 1999
Human anatomy and injury mechanics are combined to provide a Biomechanics analysis of automotive accidents. Injuries to the
face, eyes, head, brain, cervical, thorax and lumbar spine are evaluated based upon physical data, human testing and instrumental
dummies under impact simulation. Injury to internal organs, heart, liver, spleen and lungs are evaluated from cadaver tests and
autopsy. Skeletal injuries to ribs, sternum, long bones, head, feet and ankles are tabulated for vehicle delta-velocity. Airbag and seat
belt injury prevention mechanics and methods to determine use are provided for accident reconstruction.
Biomechanics of Injury from Traffic Collisions-NIFS, 1997
Injury mechanics of impact to the head, cervical spine and thorax, long bones and rib cage. Internal organ injuries, eye and facial
injuries from impact and air bags. Torso injuries from seat belt loading and Delta-velocity vs. expected injuries. Vehicle impact
and movement of occupants restrained and unrestrained. Safety belt function, performance, loading on impact, release mechanisms
and belting material inspection for loading to determine use.
