As part of a study to make a comparative analysis of selected halogenated compounds in man and the environmental media, a quantitative gas chromatography mass spectrometric analysis of the levels of the halogenated compounds found in the breath, blood and urine of an exposed population (Old Love Canal area, Niagara, New York) and their immediate environment(More)
An enhanced Finite Element (FE) model of the human Knee-Thigh-Hip (KTH) is presented as a reliable mean for prediction of bone failure mechanism for a frontal knee impact. Improvements made to the original model are reported. The model is validated against a cadaver sled test. An identical finite element impact event was replicated with use of the LSTC(More)
An enhanced finite element model of the human femur is presented as a reliable mean for prediction of bone failure mechanism for simulations involving frontal impacts. The original finite element representation of femur which was considered in this study did not encompass node connectivity at the interfaces between cortical shaft and condylar regions.(More)
The goal of this study was to model the dynamic failure properties of ligaments and their attachment sites to facilitate the development of more realistic dynamic finite element models of the human lower extremities for use in automotive collision simulations. Porcine medial collateral ligaments were chosen as a test model due to their similarities in size(More)
