Application of HyperWorks to Develop Human Body Models to Assess Injury Potential for Vulnerable Populations in Vehicle Crashes

The effects of obesity on occupant responses
in frontal collisions were investigated using
the UMTRI whole-body human finite element
models. A modeling approach was developed
and applied that allowed for rapid change of a
baseline human body model into geometries
representing adults with different BMIs without
the need for re-meshing the models.
