Under Vehicle Blast Simulation

To provide a tool to evaluate IED blast mitigation concepts developed by ESI a computational exercise was undertaken using smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH) computational techniques.

 

So as to be directly related to the client’s interest the IED mitigation conceptsUnder Vehicle Blast Simulation image1 were applied to military vehicles, and as such the simulation performed incorporated the TARDEC generic hull vehicle model.

This simulation also enabled the blast loading on an occupant seated within the TARDEC generic hull vehicle to be approximately determined.

 

Simulations output when used with additional statistical informationUnder Vehicle Blast Simulation image3 were used to provide insight into the type and extent of injury possible due to typical blasts occurring directly below the vehicle.
