CAE Model Validation in Vehicle Safety Design 2004-01-0455

This paper focuses on the development of a framework of nonlinear finite element model validation for vehicle crash simulation. Integrated computational and test-based methods were discussed for validating computational models under physical, informational and model uncertaintes. Several methods were investigated to quantify transient time-domain data (functional data). The concept of correlation index was proposed to determine the degree to which a model is an accurate representation of the real world from the perspective of the intended uses of the model. The methodologies developed in this paper can also be used for CAE model updating, parameter tuning, and model calibration.
