LIGHT AIRPLANE CRASH TESTS AT IMPACT VELOCITIES OF 13 AND 27 M/SEC

Two similar general aviation airplanes were crash tested at the Langley impact dynamics research facility at velocities of 13 and 27 m/sec. Other flight parameters were held constant. The facility, instrumentation, tests specimens, and test method are briefly described. Structural damage and accelerometer data are discussed.
