Abstract
Anti-mine blast deflectors are now used as a standard countermeasure to reduce landmine effects on a vehicle's occupants, increasing their chances of survival. The blast deflectors are submitted to an impulse from the soil ejecta and detonation products resulting from a mine explosion. This memorandum presents algebraic equations to estimate the total impulse imparted to these deflectors. The proposed equations are suitable for use in a spreadsheet program and can be used by engineers and scientists to develop anti-mine protection systems.
