The biofidelity of side impact anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs) is crucial in order to accurately predict injury risk of human occupants. Although the arm serves as a load path to the thorax, there are currently no biofidelity response requirements for the arm. The purpose of this study was to characterize the compressive stiffness of male and female… CONTINUE READING
