Research Description

The research program at the Automobile Safety Laboratory is a multidisciplinary effort that covers many aspects of impact biomechanics, computational mechanics, and vehicle crashworthiness. The test facility is one of a limited number of laboratories conducting impact biomechanics research with both dummies and cadavers. Computational efforts involve a broad spectrum of simulation software, finite element analyses, optimization strategies, and mathematical models.
