Status of FAA Crash Dynamics Program - Transport Category Aircraft 821483
THE FAA’s current aircraft crash dynamics engineering and development program plan elements are addressed. The overall program logic is delineated in a manner which illustrates the synergistic effect of each individual program element. Deficiencies in past and current findings are presented along with proposed means of resolving these issues. The subject crash dynamics program is structured to develop the technical data base and methodologies necessarily required to assess the crash dynamic environment and occupant survivability characteristics of transport category aircraft.
