Abstract:

This paper describes a UK MOD funded research project that aims to identify mathematical models for the dynamic behaviour of backpack suspensions. A test-rig is described which can be used to collect the dynamic data required, and the processing of the data is briefly discussed. The resulting pack suspension models can be combined with a human locomotion model, and used to study the effects of design changes that alter pack dynamics.
