In this study a validated human-body mathematical model was used as a pedestrian substitute in computer simulations of car-pedestrian impacts to investigate the influences of car front structures on pedestrian response to the impacts. The injury related parameters were calculated with this model, and used to evaluate the risk of pedestrian injuries in vehicle impacts. The influence of car-front parts to responses of a pedestrian was investigated with varying car-front parameters. Furthermore, a strategy in new vehicle-front design for pedestrian protection was presented in this paper, and the possible improvement was described and discussed.
