Airplane crash test dummy research. Computer model (seen on screen) based on a crash test dummy (at right). Data from crash tests carried out with crash test dummies can be used to create computer simulations that can then model a wide range of crash impacts. This computer simulation models a pilot in an aircraft cockpit. Photographed at LISA (Laboratory for Impact tests on Aerospace Structures), which is part of CIRA, the Italian aerospace research centre. LISA is one of the world's largest crash test facilities, and uses powerful computers to simulate aircraft crashes. CIRA, founded in 1984, is in Padua, Italy.
