Landmines are an open problem in many countries of the world. They cause injuries and death and no technique proposed to date guarantees fast and 100% reliable detection alone. To this purpose, many researches are going on. In this paper, numerical simulations of a prototype thermal detection system are reported, and results compared to experimental results. COMSOL simulation allowed complete understanding of physical mechanisms involved, and parametric simulation was used for design and optimization of the system.
