Abstract:

A series of experiments were performed which used the performance ability of aircrewmen in activating emergency devices to develop test and evaluation methods for emergency control devices under acceleration environments. Environments of realistic emergency situations were dynamically simulated in the human centrifuge. The interaction between various devices and their location with the environment was analyzed. Anthropometric correlation with failure to activate the emergency control device is given. The method of analyses is described and results of the experiments are presented. Author
