Abstract:

This report presents the results of longitudinally impact testing a 10-foot section of a transport airplane at peak acceleration and corresponding velocity changes of 7.4g 22.4 ftsec and 14.2g 36 ftsec, respectively. The purpose of the tests was to measure the responses of the fuselage and floor structure to simulated dynamic crash loads. The airframe test section included a full complement of seats and dummies. Acceleration and loaddeflection response measurements were obtained from the instrumented fuselage, floor and seatdummy installation. sdw
