Advanced Simulation Techniques for Low Speed Vehicle Impacts

Advanced Simulation Techniques for Low Speed Vehicle Impacts

During recent years the development of new vehicles has had to cope with continuously emerging requirements, implemented by new legislations and consumer tests (e.g. EuroNCAP) to insure occupant and pedestrian protection as well as new insurance classification tests to improve passenger car damageability and repairability. In a low speed vehicle impact performed to assess the […]

Technical Prescriptions concerning Test Provisions for Frontal Protection Systems

Advances in equipment and ongoing training can keep you at the forefront of this growing trend. Welding aluminum on today’s vehicles is becoming more common and will most likely be increasing in the future. Improving the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) continues to drive the trend toward lighter yet stronger, safer vehicles. However, many technicians […]

Pedestrian Friendly Shock Cone Aluminium Hood from Mazda

Mazda have developed an impact absorbing structure for use in car bonnets. The structure is called “shock cone aluminium hood”. The new structure was designed to minimise head injuries sustained by pedestrians when they were struck by cars. Data indicates that 30% of traffic related deaths are pedestrians, with 60% of these being attributed to […]

Development of simplified models for automotive crashworthiness simulation and design using optimization

A review of the literature showed that very little had been done for identification and development of simplified models for automotive crash problems. Development of such models is desirable for use at the conceptual design stage of automotive structure
