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.

Dr. Julie Mansfield presented some of her dissertation research looking at harness tightening procedures in CRS on Tuesday, and another work of her's and Dr. Bolte's looking at PCL injuries in proximal tibia impacts, today at the SAE WCX. She had great audiences for both and did a fantastic job.
