Dear everyone,

I am currently trying to simulate a pedestrian accident using a dummy
model. However, although i have looked through a lot of literature,
i am still unable to find details on the stiffness of body joints for
active motion, passive motion and beyond. I need them for all
joint degrees of freedom, including upper and lower neck and upper
and lower thorax

Also as i am new to this area i am unsure exactly what this stiffness
should include, whether its just the resistance to motion, or with an
added factor accounting for the segment weight.

I would be extremely grateful for any assistance people can give to
me and i look forward to your replies.

Many thanks
