Traumatic brain injury from explosive devices has become the signature wound of the U.S. armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan [1–4]. However, due to the complicated nature of this specific form of brain injury, little is known about the injury mechanisms. Physical head models have been used in blunt and penetrating head trauma studies to obtain biomechanical data and correlate to mechanisms of injury [5–8]. The current study is designed to investigate intracranial head/brain injury biomechanics under blast loading using a physical head model.
