    • Analysis of the Stuhmiller blast injury model 

      Teland, Jan Arild; Skriudalen, Stian (2013-06-04)
      The Stuhmiller model for blast wave injury has been studied. Although it has not been documented well in literature, we were able to program the model in Matlab and study some of its properties. It turned out that the ...
    • Analytical cavity expansion penetration models compared with numerical simulations 

      Teland, Jan Arild; Moxnes, John F. (2003)
      Penetration models for rigid projectiles based on cavity expansion theory (CET) are widely used. In this article we performed several hydrocode simulations and compared with analytical results from CET-based theories for ...

    • Everything you wanted to know about material testing but were afraid to ask 

      Teland, Jan Arild; Svinsås, Eirik (2003)
      The theory behind various methods of material testing is reviewed. We look in detail at static triaxial testing with a GREAC cell and dynamic testing with the Split Hopkinson Bar and Flyer plate. In particular, we ...
    • Examination of yawed impact using a combined numerical and analytical approach 

      Teland, Jan Arild (2003)
      Performing sensitivity studies using 3D-hydrocodes have normally been an extremely time consuming process and still remains so even though computer speed continues to increase. To overcome this problem, a combined analytical ...
    • Experimental and numerical study of the fragmentation of expanding warhead casings by using different numerical codes and solution techniques 

      Moxnes, John Fredrik; Prytz, Anne K.; Frøyland, Øyvind; Klokkehaug, Siri; Skriudalen, Stian; Friis, Eva; Teland, Jan Arild; Dørum, Cato; Ødegårdstuen, Gard (2014)
      There has been increasing interest in numerical simulations of fragmentation of expanding warheads in 3D. Accordingly there is a pressure on developers of leading commercial codes, such as LS-DYNA, AUTODYN and IMPETUS Afea, ...
    • Final report: Improvement of the computational methods of the Norwegian Defence Estates Agency for computing noise from the Norwegian defence training ranges 

      Huseby, Morten; Rahimi, Reza; Teland, Jan Arild; Dyrdal Idar; Fykse, Haakon; Hugsted, Bjørn; Wasberg, Carl Erik; Aker, Eyvind; Cleave, Ra; Løvholt, Finn; Madshus, Christian; Rotschild (2008)
      This report summarizes efforts made to improve the ability of the Norwegian Defence Estates Agency (NODEA) to calculate noise and vibration levels from military activities. Accurate noise maps are essential for conforming ...
    • Guidelines for conducting epidemiological studies of blast injury 

      Bieler, Dan; Cernak, Ibolja F; Martineau, L; Bjarnason, Stephen; Franke, Axel F; Kirkman, Emrys; Leggieri, Michael J; Orru, Hans; Ouellet, S; Philippens, M; Risling, MG; Sarron, JC; Skriudalen, Stian; Teland, Jan Arild; Watts, Sarah A; Gupta, Raj (2018)
      Blast injuries are often caused by more than one mechanism, do not occur in isolation, and typically elicit a secondary multi-system response. Research efforts often do not separate blast injuries caused by blast waves ...

      Josey, Tyson; Ouellet, S; Bieler, Dan; Cernak, Ibolja F; Franke, Axel F; Gupta, Raj; Kirkman, Emrys; Leggieri, Michael J; Orru, Hans; Philippens, M; Risling, M.; Sarron, JC; Skriudalen, Stian; Teland, Jan Arild; Watts, Sarah A; Bjarnason, Stephen (2018)
