Since the limited space between the car structure and an occupant makes it difficult to manage side impact energy, much biomechanical investigation has been done by subjecting the pelvis to lateral loading. In this study, the dummy finite element model was partially modified to verify the lateral pelvic loading by a rectangular shape impactor and used to explain in detail the previous investigation under iso-energy. In order to better understand the influence of impact mass and velocity under… CONTINUE READING
