Biomechanical load analysis in case of child cyclist collision with passenger car

By Zuzana Schejbalová, Alžběta Lenková and Tomáš Mičunek


The safety of pedestrians and cyclists is justified especially in terms of prevention. This paper deals with the biomechanical analysis of load exerted on the child cyclist in configuration typical for cyclists (sudden enter the road or the case of non-giving way; the car front vs. the left side of the cyclists). Two tests were performed in the same configuration and nominal collision speed, the first one with a bicycle helmet and the second one without the helmet. Using the accelerometers in the head, chest, pelvis and knee of the dummy acceleration fields were detected, which is the cyclist exposed during the primary and secondary collision. In conclusion, the results will be interpreted by values of biomechanical load and severity of potential injuries including kinematic and dynamic comparison with a pedestrian vs. vehicle collision
