An Integrated Optimization System for Airbag Design and Modeling by Finite Element Analysis 2003-01-0506

An integrated optimization system has been developed to combine optimization algorithms with Finite Element Analysis for airbag design. A number of industry standard software packages are employed to work in coherence to complete the optimization procedure automatically with minimal user intervention. The system can be easily tailored to fit multiple performance requirements and various design constraints for different airbag systems. Compared with the commonly used Design of Experiment (DOE) method, time and computer resources requirements are greatly curtailed.
The integrated optimization system was successfully used in single-chamber and dual-chamber airbag optimizations. The results proved the effectiveness of the system and demonstrated its capability in product design.
