A Viscoelastic Model for High Strain Rate Loading of the Human Calvarium

Sourabh Boruah
Brain injury resulting from exposure to blast continues to be a significant problem in the military community. In order to understand the response of the human brain under various high-rate mechanical insults to the head, the way in which the load is transmitted through the skull must be accurately characterized. The bones of the human calvarium comprise a sandwich structure with two dense layers of cortical bone separated by porous cancellous bone. Although the high...
