The target of the current examine is to research the affect of neck muscle activation on whiplash neck damage of the occupants of a passenger car underneath completely different severities of frontal and rear-end affect collisions. The finite aspect (FE) mannequin has been used as a flexible instrument to simulate and perceive the whiplash damage mechanism for occupant damage prevention. Nevertheless, whiplash accidents and damage mechanisms have not often been investigated in reference to neck lively muscle forces, which restricts the entire reappearance and understanding of the damage mechanism. On this manuscript, a blended FE human mannequin in a sitting posture with an lively head-neck was developed. The response of the cervical backbone underneath frontal and rear-end collision circumstances was then studied utilizing the FE mannequin with and with out neck muscle activation. The impact of the neck muscle activation on the whiplash damage was studied primarily based on the outcomes of the FE simulations. The outcomes indicated that the neck lively power influenced the head-neck dynamic response and whiplash damage throughout a collision, particularly in a low-speed collision.
