Abstract:

The tolerance for acceleration has been studied by experimentation on the centrifuge using human and animal subjects. Body positioning relative to the direction of the increased gravitational forces was found to be critical. In an upright position, the gravitational shifts of blood may leave the brain cells without adequate blood and oxygen supply causing grayout or blackout at 4 to 6g. This annotated bibliography compiles 99 unclassified and unlimited references of documents that have been cataloged in the DDC collection.
