Abstract
This paper describes the application of the EDSMAC4 and GATB simulation modules of the Human Vehicle and Environment (HVE) software to analyze pediatric case occupants with fractures to the proximal part of the lower extremity due to lateral collisions. EDSMAC4 and GATB simulation results were compared with in-depth crash investigations for crash dynamics, injury mechanisms and occupant kinematics. These crash investigations were conducted as part of the Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS) project at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
