Feng Zhu's picture

The 54th Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES), a joint event with the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, will be hosted by Northeastern University, on July 25-28, 2017 at its Boston campus.

You are invited to submit abstracts to 

Symposium VII-B:Experimental and Computational Trauma Biomechanics.    Symposium Organizers:

F. Zhu, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (
X. Jin, Wayne State University (
C. C. Chou, Wayne State University (

Symposium Description:

Trauma biomechanics uses the principles of mechanics to study the response and tolerance level of biological tissues under extreme loading conditions, such as car crash, falling, contact sports, and military environments. As a multidisciplinary research field, it combines the knowledge of engineering sciences, physics, and medicine. The research goal of this important area is to advance knowledge pertaining to human body response and injury causation and to develop affordable and effective countermeasures for injury protection and fatality reduction.This mini-symposium is being organized to provide a forum to foster multidisciplinary interaction and collaboration among researchers in the field of experimental and computational trauma biomechanics. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Active muscle response on biomechanics
  • Ballistic trauma
  • Blast injury and biomechanics
  • Constitutive modeling of biological tissues
  • New concepts for injury prevention
  • Occupant protection and restraint evaluation
  • Pedestrian impact
  • Protective equipment evaluation
  • Sports injury
  • Traumatic brain injury

Guidelines for submission of Abstracts, as well as further information regarding the conference, may be found at the website
