Working Group 3: Impact Engineering

Further Research

Working Group 3 has been closely interacting with Working Group 11 of the CEN TC158, which is investigating the specifications for a new testing method. Certain details of that study provide ample opportunity for further study, such as the definition of calibration tests for HIII head forms and the spread and variation between helmets and different test labs. Research in the domain of brain injury criteria also need further efforts: first, to continue efforts to define injury criteria based on six-dimensional global head kinematic parameters. Second, for benchmark studies between different FE head models in order to achieve harmonisation of model-based injury criteria.

Further research in the field will also be organised within a variety of EU projects, including HEADS, MOTORIST, SmartHelmets, Safe2Wheelers, as well as national projects in Sweden, Germany and France.
