• Parametric and design optimization analyses of blast-loaded V-shaped plates performed.
• Metamodel-based parametric analysis of blast-loaded armour V-plates.
• Plate angle, plate thickness, explosive mass and stand-off distance parameters to blast loading and blast response were examined using a combined SPH-FE model.
• Plate angle has the greatest impact on all response parameters of the metamodel, followed by the stand-off distance and plate thickness.
