title
Development and Full Body Validation of a 5th Percentile Female Finite Element Model

abstract
To mitigate the societal impact of motor vehicle crash, researchers are using a variety of tools, including human body finite element models (FEMs). Such models are often developed to represent a 50th percentile male occupant (M50). However, in order to address the effects of size and sex-related geometrical changes, there is interest in developing models of other driving cohorts. As part of the Global Human Body Models Consortium (GHBMC) project, comprehensive medical image and anthropometrical data of the 5th percentile female (F05) were acquired for the explicit purpose of FEM development. This multi-modality dataset was leveraged for the development of a posture specific CAD model of the F05.
