Effects of Crash Pulse on Kinematic Behavior and Injury Outcome in Frontal Impact Considering Pre-Impact Braking
摘要：The effects of the change in posture due to pre-impact braking on the kinematic behavior were investigated by using FE analysis and a human FE model. The full-width frontal impact and small-overlap frontal impact were selected as the crash pulse. Spinal flexion and rotation angles were evaluated by using the Euler angle. The neck extension, which was observed in dummy tests, was relatively small in the human FE model simulation because of the upper body twisting behavior caused by the human spine flexibility.
