Thirty-degree pitch-down helicopter crash pulses were examined at the Patuxent River Horizontal Accelerator facility. The pulses used were representative of standard seat qualification crash corridors for a variety of rotary wing platforms. The primary objectives of this effort were 1) to quantitatively determine the effect of varying helmet weight and center of gravity (CG) during simulated rotary wing crash scenarios, and 2) to perform data analysis using existing injury criteria to identify… CONTINUE READING
