Abstract:

The Articulated Total Body ATB model is currently being used by the AFAMRL to study the biomechanics of the pilot-seat ejection from an aircraft. The new ATB-II model presented in this report incorporates features developed since the original ATB model completion and new mathematical algorithms designed to improve the usefulness and correct some of the deficiencies of the model. The new features developed for this research program are a new harness-belt system, rate dependent force producing functions, arbitrary specification of the motion of multiple segments and the computation of the initial orientation from orthogonal projections of the segment axes.
