• Thoracic Frontal and Lateral Injury
• Dynamic Spinal Cord Deformation Measurement
• Side Impact Air Bags
• Strain Patterns in Real-World Brain Accelerations
• Experimental and FEM Model for Aortic Injury
• 3-D Modeling of Knee Joint
• Whiplash Injury Prevention Using Energy-Absorbing Seat

Other Symposium events will include:
