Abstract:

The distribution of impact pressures transmitted to the human body through the regulation shoulder straps and seat belt of aircraft has been investigated. The seat belt exerts a maximal impact pressure to the body at the umbilicus through the center of the belt. Maximal impact pressures are exerted by the shoulder straps to the body at the clavicular areas. Author
