This e-book goals to assist clinicians who search to behavior technology and engineering established examine on blast accidents in addition to engineers and scientists who search to use their services to handle blast injuries.

Blast accidents are established. whereas the present clash in Afghanistan is attaining its ultimate levels, the legacy of landmines will unfortunately make sure that accidents and fatalities will proceed to take place. the knowledge of those accidents and the technological know-how in the back of their mitigation and remedy is a multi-disciplinary attempt. present wisdom has quickly grown because of fresh conflicts, but the training has no longer but been captured in any formal way.

Example text

Therefore, there can be equilibrium when no forces are applied to a body as well as where a combination of forces is applied to a body. This is also described in Chap. 1. Note that in blast the person, or object in proximity to the person, is rarely in equilibrium; the resultant force will be non-zero. Weight is the force that results from the action of gravity on a mass; it acts through the CoG. Another term for this is Gravitational Force. When standing on weighing scales, weight is the force that the person applies on the scales 2 Biomechanics in Blast 21 Fig.

Contact forces are the forces between objects in physical contact. The description of the force between the person and the weighing scales is a type of contact force. Friction is a type of contact force that is often forgotten, yet can be overpowering in its effect. It is the tangential force acting between two bodies in contact that opposes motion or the tendency to motion. If the two bodies are at rest (resisting tendency to motion), then the frictional forces are called static friction. If there is motion between the two bodies, then the forces acting between the surfaces are called kinetic friction.

A plane defect present in all (polycrystalline) metals is 3 Behaviour of Materials the boundary of grains; grains (crystals) form during the solidification process and position themselves one next to the other to form a continuous, solid material. Crystallographic orientation, size and relative placement of grains all constitute some form of imperfection that reflects to the macroscopic mechanical and physical properties of the solid. 3 Hardening The number and type of imperfections can be controlled in part by appropriate mechanical and heat treatments.
