Land mass transport systems have an open architecture and are therefore vulnerable to terrorist attack. The access of metros, for example, cannot be controlled against explosive materials like it is done for airplanes. An approach to determine the risk in a case of a detonation inside a train is done here numerically using EUROPLEXUS.
