Abstract : This treatise is intended to familiarize medical and technical monitors of experiments on human centrifuges and other dynamic flight simulators with the various inertia effects produced by these facilities. It should fill the gap between the most elementary superficial explanations and the complicated derivations of these effects by abstract vector differential equations. The centrifugal, Coriolis, and gyroscopic effects are explained simply and in a manner that everybody interested in this field should be able to understand. (Author)
