HUByx (Hermaphrodite Universal Body YX) is a finite element model of the human body developed by CEDREM and UTBM. The genesis of HUByx stems from a desire to be able to study the damage caused by a blast wave inside the human body. Indeed, taking as an example a ballistic impact, the projectile can be stopped by any protection, and nevertheless cause significant damage inside the human body. It can be assumed that stopping the projectile causes a speed on the rear face of the protection which is transmitted to the human body and which generates a pressure wave which propagates inside it. The challenge of HUByx is to represent this pressure propagation inside the human body, by means of finite element simulations.
