Side System Optimisation with MADYMO and mode FRONTIER 2009-26-0004
Across the world different regulations are applicable for side impact, each require a different restraint system approach. However it would be much more cost effective to develop one single restraint system suitable for all global requirements. An efficient methodology has been developed to optimize the restraint system for multiple load cases simultaneously, resulting in a restraint system specification that will ensure that global targets are met. The methodology combines the use of testing and efficient numerical simulation to find a solution in the most effective way.
