Dear all,

I am looking for any references on human knee injury criteria, something like the Nij or HIC for neck and head. However, there seems to be very limited information on this issue. The closest I found was from a NHTSA 2001 report with a very limited criteria for the knee. Was there any criteria establised for the knee? If not, is there a conceptual reason why such a criteria was not established?

If you know of any references or information regarding any form of knee injury criteria, it would be very much appreciated! In addition, I am also interested in tests that reproduce injury to the knee from hyperextension, hyperflexion, twisting, lateral loading, etc under high speed loading. Any advice or references on such tests will also be helpful!

Thanks in advance for any information you may have.
