Abstract:
The objective of this research is to study the effect of front seat structure in Federal (FMVSS 214) dynamic side impact Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation. This research investigates the side structure behavior, buckling mode, velocity, and deformation of components such as the B-pillar, front door, rear door, floor pan, and rocker in three different configurations, using two different front seal stiffnesses.A methodology was developed to reduce side structure deformation and associated component velocities, thereby minimizing occupant loading.
