This report summarizes the results of a blast response study of select truck configurations fielded in the DICE THROW test. Using the TRUCK computer code, the response time-histories of four different Army wheeled vehicle systems exposed to both blast overpressure and dynamic pressure loadings were obtained. Important motions of the total systems subsequent to blast wave interception, particularly vehicle overturning, are plotted.
