Abstract
The report is sub-divided into five sections. The first deals with aircraft accident data and associated head injuries. The second section presents a review and summary of pertinent literature concerning head injury mechanisms. The third section presents a compilation and summary of all relevant performance standards and test methods pertinent to the evaluation of aircrew protective headgear.
