Armoured Personnel Carrier Blast Analysis


Modern cars are designed to protect occupants in different dangerous situations like blast, crashes... Simulation tools can help engineers to predict these scenarios and design the proper mechanisms so that damage is minimized in the structure and, thus, human lives are saved.
 
In this project, LS-DYNA was used to simulate a 6 kg TNT buried explosive under the car. The Dummy was strapped into a safety harness. The structural integrity of the vehicle was evaluated as well as forces and accelerations at specified locations on the dummy.
