Simulation-Based Forecasting Effects of an Accidental Explosion on the Road. Part II: Case Study

This paper presents the application of a simulation-based procedure developed for forecasting the mechanical effects of an explosion during a road accident. The final result is a probabilistic model that describes the likelihood of the occurrence of an accidental explosion as well as the characteristics of the incident blast wave generated by the explosion. The accident simulation is based on a classical Bayesian approach to risk assessment.
