Blast-Resistant Improvement of Sandwich Armor Structure with Aluminum Foam Composite

Article English OPEN
Yang, Shu; Qi, Chang;

Sandwich armor structures with aluminum foam can be utilized to protect a military vehicle from harmful blast load such as a landmine explosion. In this paper, a system-level dynamic finite element model is developed to simulate the blast event and to evaluate the blast... View more
