Computational Modeling of the Thorax under High Impulse Loading

In order to obtain knowledge of what happens to the human body during some traffic accidents, it is very important to improve knowledge about the human body subjected to an explosion. For ethical reasons, blast experiments on post mortem human subjects are uncommon. Instead, computational modeling is very helpful. Numerical simulations of the dynamic behavior of the head/thorax etc. under high impulse loading allow us to better understand causes and location of injury to soft/hard tissue.
