The report describes the search and collation of currently available acceleration literature and related information of interest in aviation crash injury prevention. Approximately nine hundred documents unique to this study were catalogued. An information retrieval system was devised to facilitate future crash injury research using these data. Major categories in which information relative to impact acceleration has been collected are as follows hazard exposure, crash loads, human tolerance, design, and test analysis methodology. The primary effort during the study was devoted to collecting the data. However, the scores of personal contacts made throughout the industry during the program and the study of the documents themselves provided a general insight into the nations technology in impact acceleration related to crash injury research.
