Blast injuries to ocular structures and the visual system, with special emphasis on those injuries caused by the primary blast wave
, are a significant concern among healthcare providers due to the high prevalence of blast injuries seen over the past two decades of conflict in the Middle East.
In order to better understand the expansion of high explosive blast waves
in confined geometries of a building (Figure 6), 3D finite element modeling using the Ansys-cfx sotware was performed.
Measurement of blast wave
by a miniature fiber optic pressure transducer in the rat brain.
Both exhibited the hallmarks of strong circumstellar interaction with a supernova blast wave
The load was defined using a velocity boundary condition with a triangular amplitude curve and a peak value equivalent to the initial particle velocity of the blast wave
The blast wave
from this explosion will damage essential public services and mean the loss of many hard working council employees.
A mile from ground zero the blast wave
was traveling at 190 mph, placing 1,180 pounds of overpressure per square foot on building walls, instantly flattening most structures.
Journalists have generally had hours -- not minutes or seconds -- to craft a story from the blast wave
of facts and factoids that comes in the wake of a bombshell.
A three-hour autopsy conducted on June 10 on the body of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi showed that he died of massive "tearing and bruising" of his lungs caused by the blast wave
from the two 226-kilogram bombs dropped on the safe house where he was hiding on June 6.
At the initial stage there was this blast wave
which is what most people were reporting.
Everything in the path of the blast wave
was damaged inside the flats.
BLI is a direct consequence of a blast wave
from a high-explosive detonation striking the body and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality both at the scene and among initial survivors.
