ANALYSIS OF CHEST IMPACT RESPONSE DATA AND SCALED PERFORMANCE RECOMMENDATIONS

The chest impact data of Kroell, et al., and Stalnaker, et al., were examined to determine the relationships that might exist between the physical characteristics of cadavers, impact conditions, and responses. Regression equations were found that fit the Kroell male data extremely well. Based on a regression analysis of the Kroell male data, scaling rules were developed that allowed performance requirements for chest response to be defined for 5th, 50th, and 95th percentile dummies. Currently recommended response corridors based on an extended data base are presented in the Appendix.
