Several factors potentially contribute to the risk of whiplash injuries; one of them is the neck muscle activities. Muscle activities in the neck have been shown to influence the head-neck kinematics during whiplash-like rear impacts. Thus,

Composites with 3D-woven reinforcement have been slowly making their way into different industries. The interlacement of yarns, not only in-plane but also through-thickness, means that in many applications 3D-woven composites can outperform their laminated counterparts. In
