To determine the effect of group composition on backtest (Bt) responses and to determine the predictive value of the Bt for the physiological stress response to weaning and mixing, 814 pigs were backtested at 3, 10 and 17 days of age. Twenty-nine percent of all pigs were cross-fostered at 3 days according to Bt responses and groups were formed of animals(More)
The objective of the present study is to gain a better understanding of the possible importance of skull-brain interface conditions, boundary conditions at the head-neck junction, and brain material properties when modeling the response of the human head to transient loadings. To that end, a two-dimensional plane strain finite element model of a(More)
