The student will be responsible for aiding in computational modeling of hemorrhage following head impact during car accident cases using finite element modeling. The goal of this work is to provide insight on why the presence of hemorrhage is associated with a higher likelihood of patient death. With this information, car companies may be able to engineer safer cars by mitigating head injury severity during car accidents.
