Head injury is a dangerous possible outcome every time the head is decelerated rapidly.
The outcome for the victim of the injury can range from mild concussion to permanent
coma and in extreme cases death.
In an attempt to better understand how hard an impact must be to cause severe head
injury analysis systems called injury criteria have been developed to analyse collisions.
To obtain collision data tests are performed in circumstances similar to the environment
the is being investigated.
The main goal of this document is to develop a solid understanding to the different
criteria and creat a program which will analyse impact data using the injury criteria
