An Application of CAP (Computer-Aided Principle) to Structural Design for Vehicle Crash Safety 2007-01-0882

The Computer-Aided Principle (CAP) is applied in this study as an effective approach to the crashworthiness design of the vehicle front-end structure. With this method, correlative parameters are extracted in a parametric study by using a cluster analysis. The results can help engineers to understand the fundamental mechanisms of structural phenomena. A simulation example of an offset frontal crash against a deformable barrier (ODB) is presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
