Biomechanical analysis of controlled tibial bluntforce trauma

Dempsey, Nicholas; Gilbert, Felicity; Miszkiewicz, Justyna; Oxenham, Marc


The analysis and interpretation of skeletal injuries caused by blunt force trauma (BFT) is often critical to reconstructing a victim’s osteological profile. The manner in which bone fractures in response to BFT is a complex multiphasic process that involves interactions between mechanical force, skin and the musculo-skeletal system. To further improve our understanding of how bone fractures under mechanical force, this study investigated whether a quantifiable relationship was discernible...[Show more]
