Biomedical engineering doctoral students featured in Scientific American

Biomedical engineering students Anil Kalra and Ming Shen were featured in a Scientific American article about automotive safety and crash test dummies. Kalra and Shen are working under Professor King Yang of Biomedical Engineering. The ten year old dummy model, CHARM-10, was funded by Toyota Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) with Yang as the PI.

These models are now used by Technical University of Graz in Austria, Tsinghua University in China, Hunan University in China, Wake Forest University, among others. WSU also developed the 50th percentile male head model for GHBMC. Continued work to develop other body sizes for males and females is led by Dr. Liying Zhang.
