Abstract : Human subject data collected in the program of impact acceleration tests being conducted at the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory were analyzed to investigate the relationships between dynamic head/neck response and biomechanical properties of the neck. Study of these data with head/neck motion simulation has yielded important information pertinent to eventual construction of improved anthropmorphic dummies and has helped to improve the predictive capabilities of mathematical models.
