Abstract:

CONCLUDING REMARKS Developed physics-based computer simulations of the effects of fluidstructure interactions due to blast Open-source software offers accurate and fast simulations CFD in multiply connected domain Generic geometries Developed fluid-structure-dynamics interactions mutiphysics solver Vehicle occupant motion and deformation due to directindirect exposure to blast wave In the future, Apply to realistic dummy model Develop and couple multi-body dynamics capability for human-like dummy model Deliver software for time-accurate vehicle occupant blast wave load simulations to TARDEC
