Shock attenuation of PMMA sandwich panels filled with soda-lime glass beads: A fluid-structure interaction continuum model simulation

Abstract:

The dramatic increase of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) related injuries has stimulated many studies to reconsider the design of the current state-of-the-art vehicle and body protective equipment. Materials now need to be chosen not only to stop solid projectiles such as shrapnel or bullets but also to attenuate the injurious effects of incoming blast waves. New advanced computational models of such events have been proved to facilitate the access to information currently inaccessible to e...
