Abstract:

This report covers work done in preparation for open field blast testing of swine and post-mortem human subjects as well as the development of computer models simulating the response of the swine and human brain to blast. Equipment required to perform these tests have been ordered and with the exception of the intracranial pressure transducers, all other equipment has been received and tested. The manufacturer of the pressure transducers promised delivery of the equipment in late August 2013 and testing is scheduled to begin in October 2013. A test readiness run is scheduled for July 2013 to ensure all equipment will work as expected and that the test protocol is feasible
