Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of disability and fatality in the United States. Approximately two million traumatic brain injury cases occur every year [1]. Motor vehicle crashes are a primary source [2]. Both clinical and laboratory studies have been conducted to understand injury mechanisms and establish injury thresholds [3, 4]. Physical models have also been used to investigate injury biomechanics [5, 6]. Angular acceleration is considered as a major cause of diffuse brain injuries (DBI) [7, 8], while the angular velocity is chosen as a suitable load descriptor for a diffuse brain injury criterion [4]. The present study is focused on the effect of angular acceleration duration on brain strains due to lateral impact.
