Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The U.S. Air Force has identified a need for a future test manikin to evaluate high-performance ejection seats under extreme conditions. Recently the Air Force's Harry G. Armstrong Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base developed the Advanced Dynamic Anthropomorphic Manikin (ADAM) to provide human-like dynamic response during ejection seat testing. This paper describes the initial phase of a program to assess the feasibility of this concept through development and demonstration of a femur segment compatible with the Hybrid III dummy.
