Abstract

WE PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A MICROCOMPUTER BASED INTEGRATED SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR USE BY ENGINEERS WORKING ON CREWMEMBER EJECTION AND CAR CRASH PROBLEMS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL BE AN INTERACTIVE, MENUDRIVEN SYSTEM MADE UP OF SEVERAL MODULES. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP THIS SYSTEM ON AN INTEL 80386 BASED MICROCOMPUTER. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL COMPRISE OF MODULES WHICH WILL ALLOW THE ANALYST TO DEVELOP ANTHROPOMETRIC DATA FOR CREWMEMBERS, A SIMULATION PROGRAM, THE ATB, WHOSE OUTPUT WILL CONSIST OF KINEMATIC VARIABLES ASSOCIATED WITH MOTION OF VARIOUS BODY SEGMENTS AND APPROPRIATE POST PROCESSING MODULES. THE OUTPUT OF THE SIMULATION MODULE CAN BE PLOTTED ON THE SCREEN OR DUMPED TO A PRINTER, OR VIEWED AS TABULAR DATA. THE GROSS MOTION OF THE BODY SEGMENTS DURING THE SIMULATION CAN ALSO BE VIEWED ON THE SCREEN OR DUMPED OUT TO A PRINTER. THE FINAL VERSION OF THIS SYSTEM WILL ALSO INCLUDE A FINITE ELEMENT MODEL(S) WHICH WILL ALLOW THE ANALYST TO MAP THE OUTPUT DATA FROM THE ATB SIMULATION INTO INJURY MEASURES. THIS FINAL MODULE WILL BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE II BASED ON LITERATURE SEARCH TO BE CARRIED OUT IN PHASE I.
