  • Grenade Project

    I work for the U.S. Army. We have a pretty good idea already of what
    we are going to do for a particular project, but I would like your
    feedback and validation.

    We are doing a study to record pull forces on grenade pins. We are
    going to probably instrument some (inert) grenades with strain gages
    to measure force. Does anybody have information they could offer me

    1) Which muscles are used to pull a grenade pin?
    2) What frequency of data collection and signaly conditioning and
    filtering should be used, i.e. what is the frequency of a grenade pin
    pull event?

    people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when
    young, how to use them." (Richard Henry Lee, Virginia delegate to the
