Simulated Crash Decelerations in a Light Aircraft Cabin,
AERONAUTICAL RESEARCH LABS MELBOURNE (AUSTRALIA)
Pagination or Media Count:
A light aircraft cabin containing a seat and anthropometric dummy was subjected to a vertical deceleration to simulate a minor crash. Several alternatives seats were used, all typical of those in light aircraft. The tests showed that with most seats a moderate rate of desert 5 ms could produce potentially injurious forces in the spine, but one seat limited the forces to a safe value. Author
