What's Next in Energy Absorption of Restraint Systems

Pacific Scientific Co.-James F. Gamble
Published 1974-02-01 by SAE International in United States
The impact loading of an occupant during crash conditions can be significantly reduced by absorbing a portion of the impact energy within the restraint system. A new energy absorbing device has been developed which is incorporated into the tension-type restraint system itself and provides an efficient method for passenger restraint while effectively reducing the acceleration.

Crashworthy Personnel Restraint Systems for General Aviation

Pacific Scientific Co.-Russell A. Hughes
Published 1971-02-01 by SAE International in United States
Effective personnel restraint systems incorporating upper torso restraint have been developed for general aviation. These systems stress safety, comfort, economy, ease of installation, and generation of user confidence. Inertia or force sensing reels and single point buckles are integral parts of the systems. The system for personal and private flying adds comfort and convenience to the familiar automotive type harness, while the system for business aircraft or other aircraft with structural seats utilizes the experience gained on thousands of commercial transport aircraft.
