dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this work was to create realistic computational models for investigating ocular trauma. A model of the porcine eye was developed in conjunction with physical experiments to porcine eyes. The model was based on extensive revision of previous computational models as well as data from physical experiments in the literature. A model of the human eye was developed based on the published scientific literature while applying the same modeling assumptions used for the validated porcine eye model. The response of the models showed agreement with experimental data and risk data published for porcine and human eyes. The models provide insight into the differences in response observed between porcine and human eyes under the same loading conditions. Whereas previous models focused only on the human eye, this work provides the same level of detail for the porcine eye.
