A cervical spine model was developed to investigate the stresses in each vertebra when subjected to high G-z and G-y accelerations. The experimental data used were collected from the biodynamic responses of human volunteers. The model accounts for the biodynamic viscoelastic characteristics of the neck. The results indicated that high stress occurred in C2 and C4 for G-z acceleration cases, while for G-y the high stresses were at C1 and C7.
