Blast-induced traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been the predominant cause of neurotrauma in current military conflicts, and it is also emerging as a potential threat in civilian terrorism. The etiology of TBI, however, is poorly understood. Further study on the mechanisms and treatment of blast injury is urgently needed. We developed a unique rat model to(More)
This study was conducted to characterize the intracranial pressure response to non-penetrating ballistic impact using a "scalp-skull-brain" pig physical head model and live pigs. Forty-eight ballistic tests targeting the physical head model and anesthetized pigs protected by aramid plates were conducted with standard 9 mm bullets at low (279-297 m/s),(More)
In view of the incomplete signal and other issues brought by the threshold trigger in the conventional blast wave signal test, this paper designed a post-trigger data high-speed collection method, adopted the ARM7 kernel MCU to complete the design of the hardware scheme and preparation of the corresponding test software, then developed the post-trigger data(More)
BACKGROUND Because the characteristics of blast waves in water are different from those in air and because kinetic energy is liberated by a pressure wave at the water-air interface, thoracic injuries from mine blasts in shoals may be serious. The aim of the present study was to investigate the characteristics and mechanisms of cardiopulmonary injury caused(More)
The development of high-energy weapons could increase the velocity of projectiles to well over 1000 m/s. The nature of the injuries caused by the ballistic impact of projectiles at velocities much faster than 1000 m/s is unclear. This study characterizes the mechanical and biochemical alterations caused by high-speed ballistic impact generated by spherical(More)

The dynamics response of human torso with body armor to non-penetrating ballistic impact is necessary for predicting the injury severity resulting from behind armor blunt trauma and evaluating the effectiveness of personal protection equipment against ballistic impact. This investigation developed a computational model for non-penetrating ballistic impact(More)
