Development, Verification, and Validation of G-LOC Model

The published models of G-LOC and recovery in the public domain are based on empirical fits to data from centrifuge experiments and on blood pressure. A resource-flow based model of G-LOC and recovery built using more detailed physics and physiology will be developed. This new model is implemented via software and results will be compared with existing models for predicting symptoms known to occur in aeronauts during positive and negative Gz accelerations encountered in aerobatic flight and observed in centrifuge experiments.
