Abstract : Work summarized in this report deals with four research areas. The first is the collection, organization, and analysis of animal pathology data which forms the basis for our current understanding of blast related hazard. The second is the refinement and validation of our predictive models of blast injury for the free-field that is the basis for our theoretical understanding of the phenomena and our means to set safety standards. The third is the modeling of combined battlefield trauma which is required to establish combat medicine needs. The fourth is the understanding of blast in complex environments where hazards are increased. Sections 2 through 5 summarize the findings in these areas and guide the reader to other technical documents where the work is described in detail.
