Abstract

Military vehicles are exposed, among others, to mine and IED (Improvised Explosive Device) threats. Contemporary structural solutions cannot ensure their safety at maximum level. This paper presents a review of currently used structural solutions enhancing protection level against explosion. Furthermore, requirements for military vehicles safety against mine and IED threats are characterized. As well as that, sample results of energy absorbing panels examination results are shown. On this basis remarks to further development of protective structures are formulated.
