Modeling Software for EHS Professionals

BREEZE VASDIP is an application used for assessing the vulnerability of structures and human body components resulting from explosion impacts. With this program, blast damage and injury are communicated using the most recently developed Pressure-Impulse (P-I) diagrams and users have the ability to compute changes in vulnerability as a function of individual structural and human properties. This functionality makes VASDIP invaluable when performing cost and risk analysis. 

VASDIP is designed to calculate vulnerability parameters for use in BREEZE ExDAM HExDAM and VExDAM, making it an excellent companion product to these modules for explosion modelers. BREEZE VASDIP can also be used independently to view damage data calculations for structures and human body components and to determine how such vulnerability changes as structural design and human parameters are varied.

Key Features
  • Calculate the vulnerability parameters for both inanimate structures and human body components
  • Specify detailed properties (including boundary conditions) of 24 different basic structural components and 19 different human body components
  • Provide option to modify existing and create new materials
  • Demonstrate blast damage or injury by generating P-I diagrams
  • Compute damage and injury for a given pressure and impulse
  • Determine vulnerability parameters for use with BREEZE ExDAM HExDAM and VExDAM modules
Product Tour

BREEZE VASDIP can be used to rapidly compute the vulnerability of structure and human body components from explosion impacts. For each structural and human body component, VASDIP generates the following three distinct outputs to demonstrate the damage or injury caused by exposure to a blast wave produced by an explosion:

  • Pressure-Impulse data
  • Damage levels for specific values of pressure and impulse 
  • Vulnerability parameters for structural or human body components 

While BREEZE VASDIP does not include thermal or fragmentation effects, the program does include pressures and impulses associated with blast effects.
