Incidence of concussion remains high despite the widespread use of helmets. While the primary cause of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is thought to be intracranial strain, current helmet evaluation techniques resolve head kinematics as the primary evaluation metrics. These techniques have been highly effective in reducing focal brain injuries. However, their effectiveness in reducing the incidence or severity of concussion has been less clear. There remains a need to advance tools and methodologies capable of making a more direct link between helmet certification protocols and the causes of concussive injury. This study presents displacement and strain within a deformable head surrogate, the BIPED headform, subjected to an extensive series of impacts. Impacts were captured under high speed X-ray at 5,000 fps, and strain fields were computed using digital image correlation. Results from this study were compared to cadaveric brain tissue displacements measured under similar impact experiments.
