The paper describes development of advanced methods used in research of protective devices. Explicit FE analysis is used for modeling of drop tests. Drop tests are one of common testing procedures used in the standards and are intended for testing of device's protective properties. If we were able to assess the acceleration history from numerical analysis with given geometry and material properties, we can also perform optimization procedure and design “optimal” protective helmet.
