Abstract:
The paper describes simulation of frontal barrier impact of a car body shell structure for crashworthiness analysis using non linear explicit finite element package LS-DYNA3D. Predicted overall collapse modes of different structural component viz.apron, side rails etc. are in a good agreement with published results and also to some extent with experimental results. In this paper crash analysis of above car structure with crash guard is simulated using LS-DYNA3D and comparative analysis of crash behaviour of car structure in the presence of crashguard is shown to indicate its possible role on crash behaviour of a vehicle.
