Finite Element Analysis of a Helmet with Superskin
The paper presents load analysis of a Superskin layered helmet by finite element method. Results are compared with those of conventional crash helmet to evaluate the performance of Superskin in preventing rotational injury to the neck of the rider. Delamination of Superskin is observed that increases the safety of the rider. Solid Works and Mechanical APDL (Ansys12) softwares are used in the analysis.
