The past, present, and future of wound ballistics research in China.
International Symposium on Weapons Traumatology and Wound Ballistics. Saint Petersburg RUS, 1994/09.
I review the past and present of wound ballistics research in China and look toward the future of this subject.
The main points are as follows :
(1) Before the 1970s, China did not conduct any experimental study on wound ballistics. (2) After the 1970s, experts in ordnance and medicine closely cooperated to conduct a series of experiments or tests on wound ballistics, such as wounding effects and the mechanism of various high-speed projectiles, the treatment of the protection from firearm wounds, high quality of ammunition design, lethality criterion, blast injuries, etc.
Between 1981 and 1993, four national symposia on wound ballistics were held in China.
In 1988, China sponsored the Sixth International Symposium on Wound Ballistics.
China has made great contributions to this subject. (3) As for the future of Chinese research on wound ballistics, I suggest strengthening the following areas the relationship with weapons traumatology ; the basic science research on trauma ; the study of war wounds in special circumstances ; the applied study ; and the study on protection.
