The objective of this dissertation was to systematically investigate the pattern, causation, mechanism and mitigation of neck injuries during rollover crashes by field data analyses and finite element (FE) simulations. A survey of the field data from NASS-CDS database was first conducted. Results showed that neck was the third commonly injured body region, following the head and chest, in rollovers, and roof was the major coded-source of head and neck injuries during rollover crashes. A weighted logistic regression analysis of the NASS-CDS data further showed that occupant age, weight, number of quarter turns and vertical roof deformation adjacent to the occupant were significant predictors of neck injury odds for belted occupants. On the other hand, our rollover simulations using a set of state-of-the-art FE vehicle, restraint system, dummy, and human models indicated that roof deformation did not cause the head and neck injuries. The high head acceleration and neck load were mainly caused by the inertia of the occupant's torso compressing the head into the roof before any significant roof deformation occurred. Our simulated dummy responses also showed that the stiffness of the near-side roof did affect the head and neck injury risks in certain impact mode, in which the stronger the roof, the lower the injury risks, although our simulated human responses did not show the same trend. Simulations using a detailed head-neck FE model under conditions similar to real rollover scenarios demonstrated that impact velocity was the most important factor in determining the neck injury risk. Coefficient of friction (COF) also played an important role. As long as the COF was in a low level, padding could decrease the neck injury risk. To reduce the impact velocity between the head and the roof, seatbelt may play a very important role. Therefore, further FE simulations were performed to determine the effects of different design factors of a traditional three-point seatbelt system on limiting the occupant head excursions during dynamic rolling tests. Some general trends were recommended to design a more effective seatbelt for rollover crashes.

Providing the most current information on injuries to the head and neck sustained by young athletes, this practical text presents a thorough review of the complex and emerging issues for youths and adolescents involved in contact/collision sports. While concussions are among the most common injuries, fractures of the skull and facial bones and structural brain injuries can be serious and are discussed in chapters of their own, as are stingers and other cervical spine and cord issues and disease. Injuries to the eyes, ears and jaw are likewise examined. Prevention is a major theme throughout the book, as seen in chapters on protective head- and neckwear, transportation of injured players, and sideline response and return-to-play. Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes will be an excellent resource not only for orthopedists and sports medicine specialists treating growing athletes, but also specialists and team physicians who are on the scene at sporting events where these injuries may occur.

This book provides a state-of-the-art look at the applied biomechanics of accidental injury and prevention. The editors, Drs. Narayan Yoganandan, Alan M. Nahum and John W. Melvin are recognized international leaders and researchers in injury biomechanics, prevention and trauma medicine. They have assembled renowned researchers as authors for 29 chapters to cover individual aspects of human injury assessment and prevention. This third edition is thoroughly revised and expanded with new chapters in different fields. Topics covered address automotive, aviation, military and other environments. Field data collection; injury coding/scaling; injury epidemiology; mechanisms of injury; human tolerance to injury; simulations using experimental, complex computational models (finite element modeling) and statistical processes; anthropomorphic test device design, development and validation for crashworthiness applications in topics cited above; and current regulations are covered. Risk functions and injury criteria for various body regions are included. Adult and pediatric populations are addressed. The exhaustive list of references in many areas along with the latest developments is valuable to all those involved or intend to pursue this important topic on human injury biomechanics and prevention. The expanded edition will interest a variety of scholars and professionals including physicians, biomedical researchers in many disciplines, basic scientists, attorneys and jurists involved in accidental injury cases and governmental bodies. It is hoped that this book will foster multidisciplinary collaborations by medical and engineering researchers and academicians and practicing physicians for injury assessment and prevention and stimulate more applied research, education and training in the field of accidental-injury causation and prevention.
