Abstract

In case of a mine detonation under a vehicle the vertical impulse load will affect the occupants and especially their lower extremities. The MADYMO Human Body Model with facet leg (HBM) shows good potential for studying the leg loads. The goal is to develop a numerical injury assessment for the lower leg when subjected to a mine detonation under a vehicle. The bare footed model is validated according to recent PMHS test data. A shoe model is created for future more realistic applications. The injury assessment capabilities of the HBM and the Hybrid III numerical model are compared.
