Working Group 3: Impact Engineering - Working Group Focus

Article Index

Working Group Focus

In relation to COST Action TU1101, the primary focus of Working Group 3 was to:

  • Analyse the motion of the head (kinematics) at the moment of impact in real-world accident conditions;
  • Explore helmet impact conditions in order to improve helmet testing;
  • Review existing head injury criteria based on global kinetic parameters;
  • Achieve progress in the field of Finite Element Model-based head injury criteria;
  • Propose new pass/fail criteria for helmet testing;
  • Present a new helmet test method and suggest areas for further research;
