Virtual Human Body Models

The virtual human body model is a Finite Element (FE) computational model of the human body designed to replicate its biomechanics and kinematics in a variety of scenarios. Elemance offers a variety of models including occupant, pedestrian, detailed and simplified versions.

Mid-Sized Male Simplified Pedestrian

Elemance offers the 50th percentile stature simplified male pedestrian model (M50-PS). This model is in the standing position and is simplified with ~840 thousand elements. The model is suitable for quick simulations, and pedestrian kinematics. (176 cm, 75 kg)

Child Simplified Pedestrian

Elemance offers the six (6) year old stature simplified pedestrian model (6YO-PS). This model is in the standing position and is simplified with ~830 thousand elements. The model is suitable for quick simulations, and pedestrian kinematics. (117 cm, 19 kg)

Detailed Models

Detailed models have detailed bones, internal organs, sufficient to predict most crash-induced injuries. They have been engineered to have detailed injury prediction for many of the most commonly sustained crash induced injuries. They are set up to be platforms for more crash induced injury metric and criteria development, and are available for crash, sports, and military related studies.

Simplified Models

Simplified models have as much as ~50x faster run time versus detailed models. They are set up for occupant kinematics and kinetics, and are optimized for robustness, ease of positioning, parametric studies, modularity, with the same overall geometry as the detailed models.  They have fewer elements, fewer internal contacts, utilize kinematic joints, and simpler material models.
