Abstract

For a better understanding of neck injury mechanism in lateral-collisions, experiments and analyses have been conducted on human head/neck/torso impact responses and cervical vertebral motions upon loading of lateral impacts from the shoulders of human volunteers. At the same time, differences in neck muscle responses between the male and female volunteers have been also analyzed by means of experiments. Likewise, the differences between human volunteers and cadavers have been also studied and discussed.
