We're now designing things so they blow up properly.
Wow. What a world.

If you are inside that carriage you are still screwed, but reduced damage to those outside and quicker access for rescue crews. Also, some mitigation of damage to passengers if the safety windows allow the pressure out more easily and seats are not blown down the carriage.

Unfortunately necessary research.

'The furniture and ceiling tiles stay in place.'
My goodness who writes this crap?
Lowest common denominator, that's who writes it, and we get to read it and watch this. Don't you people ever see the error in communication? Some people make our world very crappy.

Much easier to clean out the minced meat with a hose than picking up pieces amongst the debris...

Yeah if a bomb that size goes off in a rail-car? Everyone inside is pretty much toast.

Keeping the external damage to a minimum and allowing rescue crews in faster to help any who might have survived is still a good idea though.

Definitely a mitigation technology that assumes those on-board have a very high likelihood of sustaining serious or fatal injuries so the point is to protect folks outside the car itself.

Kinda similar to this

Crakr: More or less what I was going to say, only better said.

That's a good start but there's still a problem. When the first one blows apart all the pressure is released, but the prototype keeps the explosion contained which means the power of the shockwave would be multiplied. Some people don't realize that you don't have to hit by shrapnel or blown to bits to die from an explosion. If the shockwave from the explosion is strong enough it can turn your organs & tissues to mush.

@CrackrJak surely trying to reduce shrapnel etc is a good thing? Like yeah if you're in there you're gonna be pretty drated, but if you can reduce the collateral damage then why not?

We've concluded yes bombs will kill you in there.

Despite all that, you'd still be stuck inside a metal tube. the concussion alone in those confines could be enough to rupture your organs and kill you. At that point, whether the ceiling tiles or glass stays in place is irrelevant.
