Data obtained in three different studies related to measurement of forces on the body due to air movement are summarized. The effects of short duration blast forces on personnel seated or standing at various distances from openings during pressure loss, blast forces necessary to disorient the body from numerous positions, effects of clothing on the drag forces, and measurements of forces and moments on the body during wind tunnel tests are discussed and compared.
