Development of an Optimized Structure for Meeting Pedestrian Protection Requirements 2011-01-0770

In recent years, pedestrian protection from passenger car impacts has become an important issue. In this study, a lower stiffener system has been implemented in order to reduce lower leg injuries. This system was developed using finite element analyses and impact testing. Injury criteria including bending angle, shear displacement, and deflection were studied in the analyses. These variables were optimized using a DOE (Design of Experiments) sensitivity analysis.
