Final Workshop presenting

EU FP7 research into Thoracic Injury assessment for Improved Vehicle Safety

On Thursday 25th April 2013 the THORAX project will organise a public workshop. During this workshop results from the THORAX project as well as related THOR dummy activities ongoing in other regions will be presented to invited guests. In line with the activities for the hardware development and evaluations the program includes:

  • Outcome of accident surveys into thoracic injuries
  • Biomechanical studies into dummy specifications, including:
    • Identifying biofidelity requirements for a frontal impact dummy thorax
    • Proposing priorities for dummy thorax updates and design concepts that addressed those priority areas
  • Injury parameters to be assessed in the updated dummy
  • Shoulder – thorax complex development
  • Biomechanical performance of the demonstrator dummies incorporating the updated shoulder – thorax complex
  • Injury risk curve development
  • Sensitivity to restraint system settings and deceleration pulse?
