Design of an Advanced Headform for the Prediction of Eye and Facial Injuries( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Virginia Tech - Wake Forest, Center for Injury Biomechanics is in the second year of a multi-year research effort focused on predicting face and eye injury resulting from blunt impacts. The primary thrust of this effort is the development of physical headform capable of measuring face and eye impact loads. In order to assess the capability of protective equipment in reducing eye and facial injuries, the FOCUS headform is being developed with the capability of predicting fracture of facial bones, as well as eye injuries from impact loading. The headform will be used by the United States Army to test and evaluate various protective devices and other equipment to assess the likelihood of these devices to prevent, or possibly cause, an eye or facial injury. It is expected that this headform will be used by researchers and engineers in other disciplines as well; for instance, this headform can be used to evaluate the injury potential of sports equipment or the effectiveness of automotive safety systems
