The main objective of the Virtual Vehicle Assessment (ViVA) project is to take the first step in establishing an Open Source digital Human Body Model (HBM) for crash safety assessment, and to use the HBM to address gender inequality. A web platform for open and independent exchange of HBMs and other related research results will be established. Basic data on antropometry and MRI scans will be obtained and uploaded on the web platform and the current project will start this process by providing data on an average female car occupant. The female data will form the basis for the meshing of a finite element HBM. First a whole body mesh of low complexity will be implemented. Then, a more refined neck and spine system will be implemented and tuned to reproduce the responses of female volunteer test. All this data will be openly provided via the platform to allow researchers worldwide to use and refine the HBM. To demonstrate the potential for improved safety for female occupants a virtual test procedure will be established and used. Improvements to dummy models and the development of a representative seat model will enable a link from real world accident data via crash testing and over to virtual testing.
