abstract

  • During an anti-vehicular (AV) landmine event a large impulse is applied to the underside of a vehicle, causing rapid deformation of the lower hull and floor. These deformations, as well as the global vehicle acceleration, have the potential to cause serious injuries to vehicle’s occupants. As the lower legs are often directly in contact with the floor, they are loaded rapidly and are particularly vulnerable to injury.
