Synopsis : This book includes 40 noteworthy papers covering more than 15 years (1993 to 2009) of research on the biomechanics of neck injuries. Although much of the underlying testing was vehicle-related, writes editor Jeffrey A. Pike, the resultant data regarding neck motion and loading are applicable to a broad range of injury scenarios. In addition to numerous SAE papers, Neck Injury Biomechanics includes papers from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration s International Technical Conference on the Enhanced Safety of Vehicles (ESV), the Stapp Car Crash Conference, and the International Conference on the Biomechanics of Impact (IRCOBI), as well as articles from Traffic Injury Prevention. The book also includes an introductory background section that ties together concepts of anatomy, injuries, and radiographic imaging so that the research featured in the book will be more readable and useful to a wide range of safety professionals. A bibliographic listing of 100 additional references is also included.
