Recommendations for a New and Improved ORCA Modeling System Blast Module

Report No. ARL-TR-3320
Authors: Owen P. Litt
Date/Pages: September 2004; 28 pages
Abstract: The blast module of the Operational Requirement-based Casualty Assessment (ORCA) modeling system computer software package was reviewed and compared to the WRAIR blast injury model (INJURY). As a result, recommendations are presented in this report to improve ORCA by expanding its capabilities consistent with INJURY results and to expand the ORCA inputoutput capabilities. The recommended improvements include incorporating a newly developed ORCA mathematical lethality/injury blast effects model and its computer implementation, ORCA model changes, and expanded user interaction capabilities.
