Abstract

The U.S. Army Aeromedical Laboratory (USAARL) and CFD Research Corporation are developing a complete head injury biomechanics multi-physics model. We have combined various techniques in finite element model to simulate helmet structural dynamics during blunt impact. By varying the impact locations with respect to the helmet, the shape of the helmet pads, and the material properties of the helmet components, we can study the protection performance of the helmet.
