Occupant Impact Injury Tolerances for Aircraft Crashworthiness Design 710406

Human impact injury and survival tolerance levels for various crash conditions are presented on the basis of currently available biomedical and biomechanical knowledge. Consideration of physical factors influencing trauma-including body orientation, restraint system, magnitude, distribution, and time duration of deceleration-are summarized, as well as tabulations and sources of data for both whole body and regional impact tolerances. These biological data concerning human impact tolerances are provided as guidelines for improved engineering design of general aviation crashworthiness.
