Welcome to the IBRC!

About Us

The Injury Biomechanics Research Center (IBRC) at The Ohio State University is a multi-disciplinary research center dedicated to investigating the relationships between human injury and physical mechanical properties.  The IBRC has completed research in the field of automobile safety for the last 15 years.  The IBRC brings together an interdisciplinary team of engineers, anatomists, anthropologists, physicians, computer modelers and technicians, who focus on both mechanisms of injury and injury thresholds of the human body. The Injury Biomechanics Research Center has the capabilities to test with both anthropomorphic test devices (crash test dummies) and post-mortem human subjects.  The IBRC works closely with several departments of Ohio State and many government and industry partners to offer one of the most diverse testing facilities in the country.

Next up for the IBRC at the workshop: Vikram Pradhan, PhD student in BME, gave a fantastic presentation titled “Evaluation of head and cervical spine kinematics of a GHBMC M50 occupant subjected to a moderate rear impact in a production seat” with co-authors Dr’s Kang and Ramachandra. Sorry the picture is so bad!
