Abstract: This study presents a numerical approach for the calculation of fatality risk caused by the impact of flying debris on the human body. Following an explosion, the formation of a large number of high velocity flying fragments, especially from glass panes, is very possible. The velocity, the mass and the shape of these projectiles define their hazardousness. The developed numerical approach is integrated into fluid-structure interaction techniques, commonly used for the determination of the behaviour of a structure under blast loading. The implementation of the numerical approach in the EUROPLEXUS code is described thoroughly.
