Abstract: Head injury (extracranial and intracranial injuries), being one of the main causes of death or permanent disability in everyday life, continues to remain as a major health problem with significant socioeconomic costs. Therefore, there is a need for biomechanical studies of head injury, its mechanisms and its tolerance to external loading. In order to better predict the mechanical responses of the human head during head injury, comprehensive subject-specific finite element head models (FEHMs) have been constructed from modern medical images. The models have also been validated by comparing with intracranial pressure (ICP) and relative displacement data of three cadaveric experiments, before its applications in analyses of head injuries in blunt impacts and ballistic impacts.
