Abstract : Statistical impact acceleration injury prediction models are developed for the head/neck segment from data obtained during 68 -G sub x accelerator runs. These runs involved subhuman primates (Rhesus monkeys) with securely restrained torso and unrestrained head. The data was collected by the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory (NBDL) as part of its research effort on acceleration impact injury prevention. Three classes of prediction models are constructed, one based on sled profile variables, another based on head dynamic response variables only, and the third comprised of the combined set of independent variables. The model predictions are compared with the observed results to evaluate performance. (Author)
