Subject: Biomechanics and G-force effects

I am interested in finding info on g-force effects on the human body from
various forces, i.e., roller coaster rides, jet planes, vehicle collisions,
bumping into a hard, stationary object (door, wall, etc.), plopping onto a
sofa, etc. Also would like to find info on the "instant" effect and
"sustained" (over a period of time) effect.

Are there any sources with comparison values listed? Any help you can
provide will be greatly appreciated.

I am interested in both the vertical and horizontal loadings. Thanks for
your time.
