Introduction to Human Body Models, Information Day

Development of numerical human body models (HBMs) was initiated in several parts of the world with the introduction of advanced automotive safety systems, in response to the need of a repetitive tool with increased biofidelity and anatomical detail compared to the crash test dummies. Today, HBMs are suited to study human biomechanics in applications in varying fields, including but not limited to automotive, aeronautics, sport injuries, and medical applications.

This one-day course will provide an overview of state-of-the art full-body HBMs (such as PIPER, THUMS, SAFER-HBM, GHBMC, and VIVA) developed for LS-DYNA and present a brief history of the field. It is designed to provide an up-to-date overview and understanding of the possibilities, challenges, and inherent limitations with HBMs, and target a broad audience.

Prior knowledge:

The seminar is suited for users with limited or no experience of HBM as it is an introductory day preparing for participation in the 2-day Human Body Models and Injury Prediction that is scheduled for February 7-8, 2023.
