Abstract:
The rainy season in Brazil brings a significant increase in the rate of repair in external trim components. Many injuries are caused by the collision of the vehicle front, with puddles of water.The objective of this work is to establish a correlation between the results obtained through experimental tests and those obtained through virtual calculations, analyzing the behavior of components made of plastic in a vehicle when exposed to mechanical solicitations from frontal impact, at a given speed, in a partially flooded transit route.In the methodology used, the variables collected in test track and mechanical properties, of the materials involved obtained in the laboratory, were used as parameters of the virtual simulation of the event. The final correlation aims better understanding of the mechanical solicitations associated with the phenomenon, to improve design in future projects, whose main focus is the performance of the component.
