Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"The study of biomechanics of impact suffered by the human body during accidents has proved worthwhile in recent years. This volume contains about 50 papers which … cover a wide range of topics centrally important for such a study. … Simulations reconstructing the accidents with the knowledge of biomechanical inputs reported in this volume will undoubtedly play a crucial role in reducing the injury. Thus this volume is indeed an indispensable reference for researchers in impact biomechanics." (R. Usha, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1087, 2006)
