The aim of this book is to present pedestrian injuries from a biomechanical perspective. We aim to give a detailed treatment of the physics of pedestrian impact, as well as a review of the accident databases and the relevant injury criteria used to assess pedestrian injuries. A further focus will be the effects on injury outcome of (1) pedestrian/vehicle position and velocity at impact and (2) the influence of vehicle design on injury outcome. Most of the content of this book has been published by these and other authors in various journals, but this book will provide a comprehensive treatment of the biomechanics of pedestrian impacts for the first time. It will therefore be of value to new and established researchers alike.
An extraordinary story of inheritance, belonging and the stories that bind us to our past, set in modern-day London and 1920s Kashgar.
This book is based on practical cycling experience I have obtained over the years cycling through busy urban streets including London, United Kingdom. My cycling experience sometimes takes me to cover up to fourteen miles to and from, navigating, maneuvering and following road regulations through traffic, poorly designed road signs and layouts, roundabouts, junctions, road intersections and many more. I am writing this book to share my experience, encounters and near misses with other road users like cars, Lorries, motorcyclists and some cyclists to international cycling enthusiasts out there so as to assist safety arrival of their respective destinations. Firstly, this book highlights on main causes of cyclist's accidents and deaths. Secondly, this book would teach you more about road safety and how to ride safely on roads. Thirdly, It would help you avoid collisions, injuries, accidents and untimely deaths. Also it has the potential to teach you how to repair and maintain your bike (DIY). Ultimately, safety and accident free cycling are the book's primary goals and assures.
