Description

THE IMPORTANCE OF SLIDING TO MINIMISE ROTATIONAL FORCES ON THE BRAIN

Only vertical impact is examined in the “drop” tests carried out in the laboratory, during which the helmet must be able to absorb all the energy in one single point.

However, when analysing what happens in real-life accidents, we see that that helmet must be able to slide over objects or on surfaces to diminish, as much as possible, the rotational kinetic energy of the impact. Therefore, the design of the helmet’s external surface is smooth, non-stick and free of bumps or protuberances.

Energy is initially absorbed at the 1st point of impact (A). Glancing off distributes energy to (B) and then to the end of the impact (C). Without this, all of the rotational energy would be concentrated at (A) increasing the risk of damage to the brain and cervical vertebrae.
