Fu, Y., Li, G., Yang, R., xiao, B. et al., "Multi-Objective Optimal Design and Robustness Assessment Framework for Vehicle Side Impact Restraint System Design," SAE Technical Paper 2011-01-0107, 2011, doi:10.4271/2011-01-0107.
With the increasing demands of developing vehicles for global markets, different regulations and public domain tests need to be considered simultaneously for side impact. Various side impact countermeasures, such as side airbags, door trim, energy absorbing foams etc., are employed to meet multiple side impact performance requirements. However, it is quite a challenging task to design a balanced side impact restraint system that can meet all side impact requirements for multiple crash modes. This paper presents an integrated multi-objective optimal design and robustness assessment framework for vehicle side impact restraint system design.
