2019 Figshare  
Objective: Since 2005, National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Incorporated (NASCAR) drivers have been required to use a head and neck restraint system (HNR) that complies with SFI Foundation, Inc. (SFI) 38.1. The primary purpose of the HNR is to control and limit injurious neck loads and head kinematics during frontal and frontal oblique impacts. The SFI 38.1 performance specification was implemented to establish a uniform test procedure and minimum standard for the evaluation of HNRs

Method: Eight sled tests were conducted using the SFI 38.1 sled test protocol with additional test setup constraints. Four 0° frontal tests and 4 30° right frontal (RF) oblique tests were conducted. The first 3 tests of each principal direction of force (PDOF) used nylon SFI 16.1 seat belt restraint assemblies. The fourth test of each PDOF used polyester SFI 16.6 seat belt restraint assemblies. A secondary data set (Lab B Data) was also supplied by the HNR manufacturer for further comparisons. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 18571 objective comparison method was used to quantify the repeatability of the anthropomorphic test device (ATD) resultant head, chest, and pelvis acceleration and upper neck axial force and flexion extension bending moment time histories across multiple tests. Results: Two data sets generated using the SFI 38.1 test protocol exhibited large variations in mean ISO scores of ATD channels. The 8 tests conducted with additional setup constraints had significantly lower mean ISO score coefficients of variation (CVs). The Lab B tests conducted within the current specification but without the additional test setup constraints had larger mean ISO score standard deviation and CV for all comparisons. Specifically, tests with the additional setup constraints had average CVs of 3.3 [...]

Development and validation of an atlas-based finite element brain model

Logan E. Miller, Jillian E. Urban, Joel D. Stitzel
2016 Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology  
Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of disability and injury-related death. To enhance our ability to prevent such injuries, brain response can be studied using validated finite element (FE) models. In the current study, a high-resolution, anatomically accurate FE model was developed from the International Consortium for Brain Mapping brain atlas. Due to wide variation in published brain material parameters, optimal brain properties were identified using a technique called Latin hypercube

Additionally, falx pretension and thickness were varied in a lateral impact variation. The atlas-based brain model (ABM) was subjected to the boundary conditions from three high-rate experimental cadaver tests with different material parameter combinations. Local displacements, determined experimentally using neutral density targets, were compared to displacements predicted by the ABM at the same locations. Error between the observed and predicted displacements was quantified using CORrelation and Analysis (CORA), an objective signal rating method that evaluates the correlation of two curves. An average CORA score was computed for each variation and maximized to identify the optimal combination of parameters. The strongest relationships between CORA and material parameters were observed for the shear parameters. Using properties obtained through the described multiobjective optimization, the ABM was validated in three impact configurations and shows good agreement with experimental data. The final model developed in this study consists of optimized brain material properties and was validated in three cadaver impacts against local brain displacement data.

Characterization of Crash-Induced Thoracic Loading Resulting in Pulmonary Contusion

F Scott Gayzik, R Shayn Martin, H Clay Gabler, J Jason Hoth, Stefan M. Duma, J Wayne Meredith, Joel D. Stitzel
2009 Journal of Trauma  
Pulmonary contusion (PC) is commonly sustained in motor vehicle crash. This study utilizes the Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) database and vehicle crash tests to characterize the occupants and loading characteristics associated with PC. A technique to match CIREN cases to vehicle crash tests is applied to quantify the thoracic loading associated with this injury. Methods: The CIREN database and crash test data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration were

An analysis of CIREN data were conducted between three study cohorts: patients that sustained PC and any other chest injury (PC؉ and chest؉), patients with chest injury and an absence of PC (PC؊ and chest؉), and a control group without chest injury and an absence of PC (PC؊ and chest؊). Forty-one lat-eral impact crash tests were analyzed and thoracic loading data from onboard crash tests dummies were collected. Results: The incidence of PC in CIREN data were 21.7%. Crashes resulting in PC demonstrated significantly greater mortality (23.9%) and Injury Severity Score (33.1 ؎ 15.7) than the control group. The portion of lateral impacts increased from 27% to 48% between the control group and PC؉ and chest؉ cohort, prompting the use of lateral impact crash tests for the case-matching portion of the study. Crash tests were analyzed in two configurations; vehicle-to-vehicle tests and vehicle-to-pole tests. The average maximum chest compression and deflection velocity from the dummy occupants were found to be 25.3% ؎ 2.6% and 4.6 m/s ؎ 0.42 m/s for the vehicle-to-pole tests and 23.0% ؎ 4.8% and 3.9 m/s ؎ 1.1 m/s for the vehicle-to-vehicle tests. Chest deflection versus time followed a roughly symmetric and sinusoidal profile. Sixteen CIREN cases were identified that matched the vehicle crash tests. Of the 16 matched cases, 12 (75%) sustained chest injuries, with half of these patients presenting with PC. Conclusions: Quantified loading at the chest wall indicative of PC and chest injury in motor vehicle crash is valuable boundary condition data for bench-top studies or computer simulations focused on this injury. In addition, because PC often exhibits a delayed onset, knowing the population and crash modes highly associated with this injury may promote earlier detection and improved management of this injury.

Investigation of the Mass Distribution of a Detailed Seated Male Finite Element Model

2014 Journal of Applied Biomechanics  
Accurate mass distribution in computational human body models is essential for proper kinematic and kinetic simulations. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mass distribution of a 50 th percentile male (M50) full body finite element model (FEM) in the seated position. The FEM was partitioned into 10 segments, using segment planes constructed from bony landmarks per the methods described in previous research studies. Body segment masses and centers of gravity (CGs) of the FEM were

Segment masses compared well to literature while CGs showed an average deviation of 6.0% to 7.0% when normalized by regional characteristic lengths. The discrete mass distribution of the FEM appears to affect the mass and CGs of some segments, particularly those with low density soft tissues. The locations of the segment CGs are provided in local coordinate systems, thus facilitating comparison to other full body FEMs and human surrogates. The model provides insights into the effects of inhomogeneous mass on the location of body segment CGs.
