Abstract:

Rapid advance hampers wide knowledge and appreciation of models and analogues developed for the evaluation of human biodynamic response, performance and protection. The thirty papers presented at the Paris meeting of the Aerospace Medical Panel, November 1978, address this problem. Most cover whole body kinematic models for the prediction of body motion, as well as spinal, head-neck, and head injury models for the prediction of internal stress, strain and injury probability under escape, crash and windblast conditions. Some papers describe cardiovascular models of human response to acceleration and air-combat manoeuvres. A few illustrate applications for prediction of body motion, physiological response and injury probability under biodynamic stress, providing assistance in development of protective systems, crashworthiness and cockpit design.
