Objective: Determine if age has an effect on the mechanical properties of bicycle helmets.
- Conducted 1630 helmet impact attenuation tests to measure the effect of age and use on bicycle helmet foam
- Developed scripts in MATLAB to autonomously post-process the impact data and organize information according to existing helmet databases
- Wrote the Methods section of the research report to be submitted to the Accident Prevention & Analysis Journal
- Assisted in protocol development of the helmet and foam core impact attenuation tests
