A three-dimensional (3D) virtual human body in seated position can be used in a wide range of applications such as basic or clinical research. A male cadaver placed in the driving position in a car cockpit was frozen. Strictly parallel 5 mm thickness serial sections were then performed. Both sides of the slices were photographed, scanned and analyzed by(More)
In order to investigate injury mechanisms, and to provide directions for road safety system improvements, the HUMOS project has lead to the development of a 3D finite element model of the human body in driving position. The model geometry was obtained from a 50th percentile adult male. It includes the description of all compact and trabecular bones,(More)
OBJECTIVE The temporal bone shields sensorineural, nervous, and vascular structures explaining the potential severity and complications of trauma related to road and sport accidents. So far, no clear data are available on the exact mechanisms involved for fracture processes. Modelization of structures helps to answer these concerns. Our objective was to(More)
Materials and methods A CT-Scan of a volunteer without pathology in relation with the Petrous bone was used to build a numerical model. Using Scan2Mesh [6], a tool dedicated to the generation of a mesh from medical data, 169 slices separated by a thickness of 0.6 millimeters were processed, using an automatic detection method based on thresholding. Then an(More)
