|Title:||Accelerations relevant to blunt trauma: theory and data|
|Citation:||Industrial Health, 2015; 53(2):176-177|
|Publisher:||National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health|
|Abstract:||Maximum acceleration and the Head Injury Criterion (HIC) are both used as indicators of likely head injury severity. A dataset has previously been published of impacts of an instrumented missile on four ground surfaces having a layer of between 0 and 16 cm of sand. The dataset is compared with recently-developed theory that predicts power-function dependence of maximum acceleration and HIC on drop height. That prediction was supported by the data. The surfaces differed in respect of the exponents estimated.|
