Abstract
Not Available Advances in both hardware and software technology in the areas of pressure sensor technology and automated data acquisition make it feasible to configure complex test equipment in an efficient and cost effective manner. The proposed research involves reviewing available sensor technologies and selecting the most appropriate sensors to develop an easy to use reliable and accurate pressure sensing headform that will enable researchers and equipment designers to evaluate pressure distribution for various types of headmounted protective equipment. Additionally, specialty silicones and other polymer blends will be used in conjunction with published and measured data on real human tissue to develop a realistic headform surface with material properties that mimic human tissue. The properties are essential to ensure that the headform does not unrealistically conform to the subject protective equipment or vice-versa. This system should also be capable of being outfitted with a breathing simulator to be used when testing respirator masks and similar devices. A complete head pressure analysis system will be designed and a prototype system constructed as proof-of-concept. This design will provide for a cost-effective method to incorporate multiple headforms that will utilize the same sensor technology and data acquisition hardware and software. BENEFITS: Test apparatus for evaluating protective equipment is valuable to both military and commercial industry for product optimizati
