Recent interest in the vulnerability of humans exposed to the effects of a bomb detonation has prompted an experimental and analytical investigation into the physics of the phenomena involved, with a view towards the development of fast-running algorithms to predict human lethality. The approach utilizes technology developed for the automotive safety industry and applies these techniques toward predicting the level of injury sustained by a human impacted by various kinds of debris produced by a terrorist bomb blast outside a conventional office building.
