Abstract [en]

This paper describes both a numerical and an experimental approach to measuring the ballistic and blunt impact protection offered by military helmets. The primary purpose of military helmets is to protect users from ballistic impact but modern military helmets protect users from blunt force as well. Altering ballistic shell stiffness, lining the shell with material of different density, even separating the liner from the shell so that they can move independently all affect the transfer of stress to the head and the resulting strain experienced by the brain. The results of this study suggest that there is potential for a helmet that protects the user from both blunt and ballistic impact and can be further improved by implementing an energy absorbing sliding layer, such as the MIPS system, between the shell and the liner to mitigate the effect of oblique impacts.
