Abstract

lthough current standard bicycle helmets provide protection against so-called linear acceleration, they cannot deliver sufficient protection against rotational acceleration during oblique impact events. These events can cause severe head injuries and the rotational accelerations need to be minimized. We pursue this goal by developing anisotropic foams for bicycle helmets and define test methods to characterize foams under oblique loading.
