  • Among the whole population, small, obese, and/or older occupants are at increased risk of death and serious injury in motor-vehicle crashes compared with mid-size young men. Current adult finite element (FE) human body models (HBM) have been developed in a few body sizes (large male, midsize male, and small female) with reference body dimensions similar to those of the available physical anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs). The limited number of body sizes available has resulted in part because… CONTINUE READING
