Abstract: A numerical study using AUTODYN-2D was made in order to examine how to reduce the effect of a rear flyer plate from an explosive reactive armour (ERA) impacting a lightweight armoured vehicle hull at normal incidence. Various designs of protection systems were simulated. The dependence on deformation of the vehicle hull on the design of protection system is reported.
