This paper is a computational study of traumatic brain injury (TBI) when a human head model is exposed to blast scenarios in three different spaces: open, semi-confined, and fully confined. TBI is investigated to address the effects of confinement on primary blast injuries (PBI) in terms of injury-related biomechanical parameters of acceleration, intracranial pressure, and shear stress. The results show that the reflected blast waves from the walls increase the risk of PBI.
