In current US Military operations, warfighters are frequently subjected to blast events, which can lead to traumatic brain injury (TBI). In response to this recent and increasingly prevalent threat, helmet systems must protect the head against high velocity, short duration overpressures in addition to blunt and ballistic impacts. Understanding the blast impact response characteristics of helmet systems may improve the design and selection process for headborne equipment and contribute to reducing blast-related brain injury.
