The study investigated several physiological effects of accelerations, up to 8 G for one min., and compared the RAF mini-suit with a standard full-length suit. Positive pressure breathing and forced expiration through a partially closed glottis were studied as methods of increasing tolerance to high sustained Gz accelerations.
