MECH 436 / MECH 536 - Fundamentals of Injury Biomechanics

Finding full text

There are several important injury biomechanics which are not available online. Here's a summary of how to get the full papers from these conferences.


SAE Technical Papers: These are full text in the SAE Mobilus database. Please note that if you find these papers in Google Scholar, even from on campus, you won't see the "UBC eLinks" that take you to the full paper. You must search SAE Mobilus directly.

AAAM (Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine):

 Stapp Car Crash Journal / Stapp Car Crash Conference:

  • papers from 2003 - present are online
  • papers from 2005-present are in print.
  • papers from 1966-2004 are on CD-ROM.
