Blast induced traumatic brain injury (bTBI) is signature injury in recent combat scenarios involving improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The exact mechanisms of bTBI are still unclear and protective role of helmet and body armor is often questioned [1–3]. High Fidelity finite element models involving fluid structure interaction are built in order to understand effectiveness of helmet in mitigating early time blast induced mild traumatic brain injury.
