Abstract:

The proposed effort includes a literature search, vehicle characteristics definition, mine blast environment definition, and dynamic seat-occupant modeling with mine blast environment simulation. The product of this effort will be the analytical definition of the optimum energy absorbing characteristics for protecting occupants of lightweight military vehicles exposed to mine blasts. The Phase I effort will result in the development of analytical data that defines the influences of variables and the requirements for optimizing energy absorbing seats specifically for this mine blast environment and class of military vehicles. A mine blast resistant seat concept will be developed incorporating the technical guidance resulting from the foregoing investigation as well as ergonomic and field use considerations.
