  • Description

    Scientists at a United States Navy study centre in New Orleans are carrying out tests to determine the stress people undergo during air and vehicular crashes.

    The director of the project, Dr. Channing Ewing, said the purpose was to collect medical data that would be used to protect man against crashes in all vehicles-and, in particular, in helicopter and aircraft crashes.

    The scientists, who had been using dummies for their experiments, have now progressed to using live volunteers. And they are using a force (G-15) that equals that of a car crashing into a bridge abutment at 40 mph (64 km per hour). The tests are expected to go up to forces double the present G-15.
