Nowadays, the use of vehicles is inevitable for all people including pregnant females. Vehicle vibrations during passing road bumps and holes is one of the pregnant females’ concerns. The aim of the present study is to develop a biomechanical model of a Uterus and Fetus Set (UFS) to evaluate its response to the inferior excitation, caused by the vehicle passing over speed bumps. The most important innovation of this research is "Analysis of the effect of vehicle speed and speed bumps characteristics on the risk of injury to the fetus." "Modeling the pregnant uterus complex separately from other abdominal organs", "Biomechanical modeling based on CT scan data from a real subject", "Providing...

During pregnancy, traumas can threaten maternal and fetal health. Various trauma effects on a pregnant uterus are little investigated. In the present study, a finite element model of a uterus along with a fetus, placenta, amniotic fluid, and two most effective ligament sets is developed. This model allows numerical evaluation of various loading on a pregnant uterus. The model geometry is developed based on CT-scan data and validated using anthropometric data. Applying Ogden hyper-elastic theory, material properties of uterine wall and placenta are developed. After simulating the “rigid-bar” abdominal loading, the impact force and abdominal penetration are investigated. Findings are compared...
