Human responses are critical to understanding injury biomechanics in blunt ballistic impacts, which are defined as 20-200 g projectiles impacting at 20-250 m/s. 13 human cadavers were exposed to three distinct ballistic impacts of the chest to determine force-time, deflection-time and force-deflection responses. Comparisons were made between biomechanical responses for ballistic impacts and those previously reported for lower speed, higher mass impacts. Impact condition B (140 g at 40 m/s) gave… CONTINUE READING
