Abstract:

Data obtained on a previous study of M-I helmets were analyzed to provide the basis for implementation of thickness as the inspection parameter for helmet protection. A strong, linear relationship between ballistic limit the current inspection parameter and thickness was found. This relationship serves as the justification for the recommended change in inspection procedure. An inspection-by-attributes plan is recommended for use with the thickness inspection.
