Abstract : This report presents the results of longitudinally impact testing a 10-foot section of a transport airplane at peak acceleration and corresponding velocity changes of 7.4g (22.4 ft/sec) and 14.2g (36 ft/sec), respectively. The purpose of the tests was to measure the responses of the fuselage and floor structure to simulated dynamic crash loads. The airframe test section included a full complement of seats and dummies. Acceleration and load/deflection response measurements were obtained from the instrumented fuselage, floor and seat/dummy installation. (sdw)
