|Abstract: ||This paper presents the development and validation of a 50th percentile male
multi-body head-and-neck model, aimed primarily at analysing rear impact and the resulting
whiplash injury effects. The objective is to design a computationally efficient model behaving
like a human head and neck in the case of a rear impact. The volunteer sled tests performed
by the Japanese Automobile Research Institute (JARI) have been used for the validation of the
head–neck model for low-speed rear-impact analysis. The presented approach for the multibody
head-and-neck model is simple, effective, and capable of producing biofidelic responses.
The results show that the model can represent with a high degree of accuracy the rear-impact response of a human.|
