Abstract:
This paper presents a simulation method and its application which enables the establishment and satisfaction of side impact design requirements.Three key phases are described: 1.Determination of desirable side intrusion velocity characteristics which minimize occupant injury in light of both ECER95 and FMVSS 214 regulations. 2.Development of a condensed vehicle model which enables the velocity characteristics determined in 1) to be translated into meaningful design parameters. 3.Practical application of the method showing how it can be used to: define side structure design requirements achieve desired velocity profiles enhance understanding of design cause and effect
