Human Response to Ballistic Loading. ARL is developing technologies to protect the soldier from ballistic and blast loading. There is interest in experimental studies and theoretical modeling of the human body's response to these loading conditions and protective systems to prevent human injuries. Research for experimental and theoretical studies are sought that address the human and materiel response to ballistic loading including projectile impact, overpressure from blast loading, and high rate accelerations (such as those encountered in mine blast loading).
