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 donated through the willed body donor program at The Ohio State University.  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.

We are just under one week away from the 14th Annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium!
Presentation topics include: occupant kinematics, traumatic brain injury in blasts, head and neck kinematics, lower extremity injury and modeling, and surrogate structures and materials. In addition, there will be scientific talks from two guest speakers: Dr. Jeff Crandall and Dr. Duane Cronin.
The Symposium will kick-off with the Welcome Reception and Cornhole Tournament on Sunday evening, starting at 5:00pm.
