Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force Human Systems Division. Operational Analysis Systems Division HSDYAO and its contractor. BDM International, Inc., are developing a series of computer simulation models to estimate wartime personnel attrition on airbases. Casualty estimation in structures subjected to the effects of conventional munitions is a key part of this effort. This paper presents the methodology developed to estimate such casualties, and compares model results to historical and recent Gulf War events. While primarily focused on the effects of munitions against personnel in facilities, the underlying approach is felt applicable to a wide variety of problems in which an estimation of the effects of explosives against personnel is required.
