Abstract:

THE NAVAL MEDICAL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT COMMAND DESIRES TO NONDESTRUCTIVELY MEASURE THE INERTIAL PROPERTIES OF NON-HUMAN PRIMATE BODIES AND LIMBS. THESE RESULTS CAN BE USED IN BUILDING ACCURATE BODYDYNAMICS MODELS FOR CRASH AND SEAT EJECTION STUDIES AND FOR ASSESSING CERTAIN SHORT TERM EFFECTS IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING SUCH TESTS. ANCO PROPOSES THE USE OF THREE AXIS RADIOGRAPHY (X-RAY PHOTOGRAPHYS) OF ANATOMICAL SEGMENTS WITH HIGH ENERGY PHOTONS (EXCESS OF 120 KEV) WHICH ALLOWS THE DETERMINATION OF TOTAL MASS, CENTER OF GRAVITY, AND THE SIX INDEPENDENT COMPONENTS OF THE INERTIA TENSOR. THIS TECHNIQUE DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THE NATURE OF THE TISSUES STUDIED (OR THEIR ABSORPTION COEFFICIENT) AND DOES NOT REQUIRE EXPENSIVE ONSITE CT SCAN EQUIPMENT.
