Modeling and Evaluation of Loads in Vehicles Subjected to Mine Blast
In the paper, the numerical and experimental approach to the blast load evaluation was presented. The evaluation process is done in two steps. In the first, the full scale blast test is carried out with a simply mock-up resembling geometry of the bottom part of a vehicle. The pressure impulse is measured indirectly using a high speed camera and the motion analysis software. In the second step, a numerical simulation with the use of Multi Material Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method is utilized to assess the influence of the fluid-structure interaction and the real vehicle mass on the value of the applied pressure impulse. In the paper, the application of method was presented and the results were discussed.
