This research focuses on an investigation into the head and neck injuries sustained by toddlers due to CRS misuse under frontal and side impact crashes. A fully deformable FE model incorporating a Hybrid III 3-year-old dummy was developed which has been previously validated for frontal impacts under CMVSS 208 and FMVSS 213 testing conditions. Furthermore,(More)
The smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH) technique was used to model experimentally observed large deformation behaviour of aluminum (1100 Al) during machining. The effectiveness of the SPH method in predicting the response of the 1100 Al workpiece during orthogonal machining has been assessed through a careful comparison with the experimentally measured(More)
This research focuses on the injury potential of children in forward and rearward facing child restraint seats in frontal collisions. Vehicle crash tests were completed following the guidelines outlined in the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208 using a Hybrid III three-year-old dummy in a convertible forward/rearward facing child restraint seat.
