Impact Identification Using Smart Material Sensors 2001-01-0615

The crash performance of an automobile largely depends on the ability to identity impact damage, maintain the passenger safety through deployment of various safety restraint systems, and steer away the vehicle from impact. So, this work is focused on the impact response of an automobile structure so as to find the location, magnitude of impact and asses the severity of damage. The results of the developed generalized forward plate model compared within 2% for FEM and previous other theoretical approaches. The inverse model compared within 7% for location and reconstructed force. Damage severity assessment is also investigated.
