he lack of predictive tools to assess the relative risk of stress fracture injury has posed a great challenge for military readiness and competitive athletic training. This article presents a methodology of assessing such risks using computational models and biomechanical stress analysis in a human femur. Preliminary results have demonstrated the capability(More)

This purpose of this study was to replicate foot–ankle injuries seen in the military and derive human injury probability curves using the human cadaver model. Lower legs were isolated below knee from seventeen unembalmed human cadavers and they were aligned in a 90–90 posture (plantar surface orthogonal to leg). The specimens were loaded along the tibia(More)
A new anthropomorphic test device (ATD) is being developed by the US Army to be responsive to vertical loading during a vehicle underbody blast event. To obtain design parameters for the new ATD, a series of non-injurious tests were conducted to derive biofidelity response corridors for the foot-ankle complex under vertical loading. Isolated post mortem(More)
