Abstract:

The underbody blast event is a very complex and highly transient phenomenon very short duration and extremely high G values. Blast modeling and simulation tools, processes and best practices are leveraged from the automotive industry to assess blast survivability vehicle performance. Occupant injury risk assessment tools and injury metrics for underbody blast events are based off of automotive standards and need further investigation validation. Current MS tools are beneficial for guiding the vehicle design and development process, and are being evaluated for supporting Test Evaluation. Advanced full vehicle, system level design tools are key enablers to Assessing Occupant Injury Risk, Developing new protection technologies, Improving current force vehicles for current threats, and Designing new vehicles from the Inside Out occupant-centric.
