In this work of thesis, whiplash injury and its relation with rear end accidents are studied. After brief explanation on what whiplash injury is and its effects on both people’s health and economy, injury mechanism is studied. Injury criteria on the subject of whiplash injuries are explained, and the major factors affecting the whiplash injury risk in rear end collisions are discussed. Alternative car seat and head restraint designs for reducing the whiplash injury risk are considered and physical properties of such head restraint design are optimized as a reference for further design studies.
