PROMETHEUS, A USER ORIENTED PROGRAM FOR HUMAN CRASH DYNAMICS. COMPUTER PROGRAM USER MANUAL

Prometheus is an efficient, user oriented interactive simulation programme to study the effects of vehicle crashes on human occupants. A vehicle occupant is modelled as a two dimensional, seven link, mass-spring dynamic system restrained by seat belt and shoulder harness subject to an arbitrary impulsive force. An arbitrary energy absorbing seat interacts with the occupant. Detailed descriptions of how to use the programme along with a sample example are presented. The programme is designed to operate on the CDC 6600 computer in either a batch or interactive mode. /TRRL/
