abstract
Simulations of complex blunt trauma events have become possible due to advances in computational human body modeling via finite element analysis.[3-8] These models have the potential to elucidate previously unknown injury mechanisms and can inform regulatory agencies directed at public health and safety on potential injury mechanisms.[9-13] Finite element analysis is often used to develop such models because of its capability of handling complex geometries and modeling the non-linear behavior of tissues.[14, 15]
