CMMI (Cadaver and Mathematical Modelling Integration)

Posted in General by testing in London on July 20, 2008


Personnel working under contract for NASA used cadavers in tests to develop landing systems, spacesuits and seats in the new Orion moonship, space agency officials said Friday.

Three human bodies were used in the tests at Ohio State University Medical Center last summer and fall.

The tests provided the space agency’s safety experts and engineers assessments of the forces that astronauts are expected to experience when the new spacecraft descends to Earth by parachute.

Cadavers, examined before and after the testing, offer insights into the forces on internal organs and the spinal cord that cannot be accurately obtained using automotive crash-test dummies and computer models.
