SAE International Presents Scholarly Journal on Transportation Safety
For decades, SAE International has worked with industry leaders and researchers to present research and publish information on accident prevention and occupant protection. A new scholarly journal focusing on these topics—specifically accident reconstruction, injury investigation, intravehicle safety mechanisms, and mitigation related to human travel—is now available from SAE International.
The SAE International Journal of Transportation Safety encompasses basic research as well as issues of vehicle design and infrastructure. It provides a forum for scholarly works concerning all aspects of injury causation and mitigation associated with any transportation system. This includes safety mechanisms, impact, and injury response and tolerance on multiple scales, with the objective of developing restraint, vehicle, and infrastructure environments that are safer for the occupant, rider, passerby, and warfighter. Broad areas such as biomechanics, crashworthiness, accident reconstruction, and physical and computational modeling are within the scope of the journal.
Editor-in-chief of the journal is Warren Hardy, an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech and Wake Forest universities. He serves as the director of the Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University Center for Injury Biomechanics on the VT campus. Dr. Hardy holds a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science (Bioengineering option) from the University of Michigan; and a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics) and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Wayne State University. His research interests are impact and injury response and tolerance, macro- and micromechanisms of trauma, and automotive crash testing; his teaching interests are biomedical instrumentation design and experimental methods in impact biomechanics trauma.
