We describe a hybrid pattern-matching algorithm that works on both regular and indeterminate strings. This algorithm is inspired by the recently proposed hybrid algorithm FJS [11] and its indeterminate successor [15]. However, as discussed in this paper, because of the special properties of indeterminate strings, it is not straightforward to directly(More)
The aim of this study is to quantify patterns of age-related shape change in the human thorax using Procrustes superimposition. Landmarks (n=106) selected from anonymized computed tomography (CT) scans of 63 adult males free of skeletal pathology were used to describe the form of the rib cage. Multivariate linear regression was used to determine a(More)
Injuries caused by motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) are the leading cause of death for children in the United States as well as the leading cause of head injury. Improved finite element models that integrate the correct shape of the pediatric brain with current injury prediction metrics would improve occupant response prediction for the pediatric occupant. The(More)
