John J Combest, chair of the Global Human Body Models Consortium, and project manager advanced safety technology at Nissan Technical Center North America, will give a presentation titled Human body modeling – a better tool, an essential need at The Future of Automotive Interiors Conference in Novi, Michigan.
Advancements in science and engineering come when better tools with more precise measurements become available to the community. Human body finite element analysis has matured to a state allowing dynamic simulation of any possible vehicular event from pre-crash braking, using active muscles, to analysis of brain or internal organ injuries in the event of a rapid deceleration event or crash. A few HBMs (human body models) with these advanced human simulation capabilities have been developed, including a detailed and simplified family of models by the Global Human Body Models Consortium.
