Abstract : Studies of human test subjects undergoing sustained acceleration on the centrifuge have shown that tolerance increases with experience. This fact suggested the need for an investigation to determine if a similar relationship existed between certain impact experience parameters and subject acceleration response, which was used as an indicator of subject tolerance to impact exposure. A number of human test subjects having varying degrees of experience with experimental impact acceleration were exposed to identical impact profiles. Correlations of experience factors to indicated tolerance showed no significant relationship. (Author)
