Abstract in different language: Road traffic accidents cause one of the highest numbers of severe injuries. Virtual human body models play an important role to assess the injuries during impact loading especially for scenarios, where complex dynamical loading is taken into account. It concerns mainly vulnerable road users, where motorcyclists are addressed. The risk of fatal injuries connected to motorcycle usage is still one of the biggest among all modes of transportation. Due to a complicated interaction between a motorcycle and an opposite vehicle during their crash, the virtual approach is an optimal way towards a crash reconstruction. The presented work shows the exploitation of virtual a human body model in the injury assessment during the motorcycle against car accident using the virtual approach by the numerical simulation. The study exploits an existing human body model as a helmeted motorcycle rider, couples it to a motorcycle model and runs a simulation, where the motorcycle impacts an opposite vehicle according to a real case. Injury assessment and comparison to the real case is analysed. The paper shows the advantages of the virtual approach in a complex impact scenario reconstruction in order to optimize the personal protective equipment for injury risk reduction in future transport.
