Modeling Human Movement and Mechanics: Thoracic Cage
Publication: Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, Volume 55, Issue 2 (2022).
Authors: Theodore Milner, Geoffrey Desmoulin.
Summary: The ability of forensic investigation to pinpoint the mechanism of injury is often limited by the availability or quality of evidence necessary to draw conclusions. When the investigator cannot directly measure the forces or must determine the accuracy of differing accounts, biomechanical models can provide reliable estimates of forces and distinguish between different possible scenarios.
