Head-Neck Finite Element Modeling and Validation

In this project, we proposed to develop a complex head-neck finite element model consisting of the human brain, scalp, skull, vertical spinal bones, intervertebral disc, ligaments, spinal cords, muscles, and other bushing elements and personalized OpenSim-based head-neck biomechanical models of young healthy and older cohorts based on their magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. The models are used to explore user-centric solutions through "what-if' finite-element analysis as well as biomechanical modeling to design next-generation head-mounted wearables as well as to investigate the mechano-physiological mechanisms of the various head, neck, brain, and spinal injuries.
