...). Compressed gas blast experiments can be conveniently used to explore the mechanical response of PPE systems and instrumented surrogate head forms to blast loading scenarios in a laboratory environment. Likewise, numerical simulations can be used to study relevant field variables related to the compressed gas...

... of different materials and/or material combinations to blast loading could be very useful for the design of PPE such as helmets. This paper presents a basic experimental setup that can be conveniently used to perform such studies using small scale compressed gas blasts. An open end shock tube is employed...
