Biomechanical response of the human body inside a military vehicle exposed to AP mine explosion was studied using the finite element method. The main focus was placed on evaluation of the injury potential of the human body, particularly the brain, neck (cervical spine), and legs. Injury criteria used to evaluate the injury potential were HIC, IARV's, and some others. The military vehicle used in this research was M 1097A2, the basic model of HUMVEE. In addition to the evaluation of the injury potential, some design modifications to the present vehicle were consideredin order to reduce the injury potential to the crew of the vehicle.
