Helicopter seats are designed to a specified mass range including equipment and can only provide limited energy absorbing protection within its designed energy absorbing capability. Over recent years, military occupants have been required to carry increasing amounts of equipment, which may affect the probability of injury during a crash. To investigate the(More)
Military helicopter pilots are expected to wear a variety of items of body-borne equipment during flight so as to be prepared for any situation that may arise in combat. Helicopter seats are designed to a specified weight range for an occupant with equipment. This paper investigates how distributing the equipment on the body affects injury potential during(More)
