Dear Colleagues,

I am looking for some representative data on the types of energy and forces
that would be applied by an individual in an attempt to break down a door
(or in analogous situations, such as hitting a blocking dummy) with their
shoulder, or by kicking it down. If any body knows of some data on this,
and could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.
