Abstract:

The Army Research Laboratory hosted a Workshop on Numerical Analysis of Human and Surrogate Response to Accelerative Loading on January 12-14, 2016, at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. This 3-day workshop included 36 technical presentations organized into six technical sessions on I Under Body Blast Events II ATD Model Development III Human Biofidelic Response Corridors for Model Validation IV Development of Human Body Models V Topics Related to Prediction of TBI and VI Validation, Scaling, and Material Properties. Focused discussions addressed the assessment of existing injury criteria, methods for quantifying model validation, scaling techniques for modeling the broad anthropometric spectrum of the Soldier population, and novel imaging techniques for documenting injury. Discussions also helped to identify gaps in the current research, and to set short-term goals for continued model development, validation, and application.
