Shearing and bending human knee joint tests in quasi-static lateral load

Résumé : Previously a mathematical model of the human leg based on lateral dynamic impact tests was created (Bermond et al, 1994), but it was necessary to carry out additional quasi static lateral tests to fill in gaps in our knowledge. These studies are presented in this paper. This research concerns the protection of the pedestrian against the front of the car, and of the car occupant in case of intrusion inside the compartment. In this study, shearing and bending tests were carried out with 20 fresh human legs in quasi-static lateral load. These tests were conducted to obtain lesions in the knee joint area and to assess the behaviour law of the whole extended knee joint in quasi-static shearing or bending lateral load.
