Abstract:

A study is underway to determine the dynamic response of the head and neck of living human subjects to -Gx impact acceleration, using transducers to measure differential displacements and differential angular and linear accelerations of the head with reference to the base of the neck in response to the input acceleration measured at that point. A redundant photographic data system is being used for validation. Preliminary results are presented.
