Abstract: This report was written by the author under the Engineer Scientist Exchange Program in the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) from April 2013 to September 2014. We developed the Compression Test Rig (CTR) that is capable of evaluating the effectiveness of the blast-mitigating floor mat against assessed lower leg injury. The CTR was fabricated to simulate the loading status under the anthropomorphic test device (ATD) lower leg in the blast-loading event, and the transfer relation between the CTR response and ATD lower-leg response was clarified through the drop test with various loading conditions.
