The Potential for Predicting Flexible Car Crash Response 670895
The potential for rapid and precise predictions of car crash response lies in recent developments of computer-augmented structural analysis techniques. The essential step required is to develop and validate a mathematical and numerical simulation. This step is impeded by the complexity of the car structure and equation solution, the extensive calculations, and inadequacies in basic data. Test data indicate that no major technical advances are required. An economical analysis capability could be developed in less than 6 months.
