The objective of this work is to study the effectiveness of an advanced coating material, polyurea, as a blast mitigation tool for steel components. The response of polyurea coated steel components under blast loading is studied using the explicit LS-DYNA code with appropriate loading time histories supplied using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code developed at Penn State University, PUMA2 (Parallel Unstructured Maritime Aerodynamics-2).
