The Simulation of CHERY Full-Scale Side Impact Test 2004-01-0348

Now, crash simulation has brought remarkable advances using the finite element method for evaluating vehicle crashworthiness and occupant protection. In accordance with the first full-scale side impact test in China, the finite element model of CHERY side crash simulation including CHERY car, Moving Deformable Barrier (MDB), and EuroSID-I dummy is modeled using nonlinear finite element analysis program visual proving ground (VPG) of engineer technology associate (ETA), inc. The results of simulation show excellent correlation with the test data, which provides the confidence of the simulation prediction. Finally, mend application for vehicle side crashworthiness is evaluated using the side impact model.
