    1. Mechanical Properties of the Developing Porcine Skull Arun Mahapatra, Tim Baumer, B.S., Dr. Roger Haut, Ph.D. Introduction Currently, there is no computational model to predict skull fracture patterns in pediatric cases. For cases that may involve abuse, it is necessary for the Forensic Pathologist to determine if cranial injuries were caused intentionally. Previous studies have shown that young porcine cranial bone exhibits mechanical properties similar to those of human infants. By examining the mechanical properties of porcine cranial bone and its behavior during blunt impact, a basis for a computational model for human specimens will be created
