I am initiating a project to examine the function of the
inner lining (foam padding) of safety helmets used in sports.
I am looking for studies that integrate the mechanical properties
of the lining with its function in the helmet. Our intention is
to apply current theories from Biology, on the mechanical design
of natural shock absorbing systems, to improve on the usefulness
of the inner lining.
