Abstract:

The purpose of this task was to assemble and correlate blunt trauma data with primary emphasis on the relevancy of the data to the goals and objectives of the overall Lightweight Soft Body Armor Program. Secondarily, the applicability of these data to projectile-induced blunt trauma generalizations was considered. The task was carried out in two related phases. The first was a review phase during which the data were evaluated by a mixed discipline team to establish the validity and applicability of each data set to the objectives of this task. The second phase involved the analysis of those data sets identified as most relevant during the review phase and resulted in two provisional multiplicative models.
