• Cellbond Technical Conference

Dr David Hynd, Head of Biomechanics at TRL, gave an invited presentation at the Cellbond Technical Conference, which was held to celebrate Cellbond’s 30th birthday. Cellbond produce aluminium honeycomb barriers for use in many types of car crash tests around the world. David presented a light-hearted look at the history of the THOR frontal impact crash test dummy, as well as an overview of a series of UK and EU projects that have led to proposals for new restraints and test procedures that have considerable potential to improve older vehicle occupant safety in the event of a collision. The presentation prompted lots of vigorous questions and has led to invitations to participate in the work of European and US groups evaluating injury risk functions for THOR.
