Abstract:

A FORTRAN computer program RAYMAN has been written that simulates an average human adult male in a hostile ballistic environment. Projectiles are picked from a user-chosen ballistic threat and those striking the phantom human are tracked to their exit from his body. Ballistic vulnerability factors, associated with the physiological detail of the phantom, are retrieved at regular intervals along the shotlines of the impacting projectiles. The retrieved vulnerability factors are averaged over many shotlines to yield a histogramic representation of the average vulnerability factor versus tissue penetration. Results are printed in tabular form along with identifying captions. Author
