A Combat Vehicle Gun Fire Simulator for Analyzing Crew Shock Loading 2005-01-1409

This paper describes a system which includes several subsystems forming a gun recoil injury-monitoring simulator. These subsystems include: a motion simulator, motion capture system, mannequin with integrated data acquisition, and combat vehicle dynamics model. Motion data from these subsystems provides vehicle and human factors engineers with valuable information about the occupant response to gun fire events. The final system has been successfully utilized recently on a gun fire program that enabled vehicle designers to determine results of their concept design. The simulation design exceeded performance expectations and can be used on future vehicle design iterations.
