Abstract:

Practical aviation and space travel involves the possible action of shock accelerations on human beings. The effect of these accelerations on human beings is being subjected to thorough investigation at present L-3. Research in this field is being conducted principally in connection with catapulting. In various types of special work geological prospecting, road construction work, etc. the personnel must stay in structures providing protection from explosions. During the time involved, human beings may be subjected to impulse accelerations produced by the propagating explosion wave.
