Dear List Members,

I am presently conducting research on human injury biomechanics due to
blast.

Does anyone know of any simulation program(s) that integrate a fluid
dynamics code (for modelling blast situations and effects) and a structural
mechanics code (for modelling whole body and/or tissue biomechanics) to
predict injury on humans exposed to blast?

Does anyone also know of any existing injury or tolerance limits to assess
human trauma due to blast overpressure and induced acceleration? If you are
presently conducting such research, I will be pleased to hear from you too.

Thank you in advance for your time and kind assistance. I shall post a
summary of replies for interested Members.

Best wishes,

Kok-Yong Seng
