"Rapid Evaluation of Energy Absorbing Materials for Head Borne Impact Protection"

 

As researchers continue to improve our understanding of the factors contributing to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) due to blunt impacts to the head, the protective helmets used to prevent these injuries must adapt to evolving performance requirements. A critical

factor in the impact performance of any helmet system is the material composing the energy absorbing (EA) liner. There are a plethora of existing and new materials continuously being synthesized and marketed for use in EA liners. Evaluating EA materials to find the optimal material can be resource intensive both in terms of time and cost with no guarantee of performance improvement. This talk will detail the finite element analysis performed to address this problem as well as the parallel physical testing used for validation.
