Meijer, R. van der Horst, M.J. Ono, K. Yamazaki, K. TNO Wegtransportmiddelen JARI, Japan Publication year 2000 Abstract At TNO an omni-directional mathematical human body model has been developed. Until now this human model has been validated for frontal and lateral loading using response data of volunteer and post mortem human subject (PMHS) sled tests. For rearward loading it has been validated for high speed impact (10 to 15g) using PMHS responses. The objective of this study was to stimulate JARI volunteer low speed rear impact sled tests using the MADYMO 50th percentile male human model. From the simulation results of the JARI volunteer sled tests together with simulation results of high speed rear impact PMHS sled tests, it can now be concluded that the human model is a valuable tool to predict head and neck responses to low and high speed rear impact.
