Dynamic Analysis of Automotive Structural Systems 700844

A mathematical model is developed for the study of vehicle dynamic behavior of crash environments. Once developed such a model will allow the simulation of many vehicle structure-crash combinations at low cost. Ultimately the model is to be used as a design tool for determining structural configurations which optimize passenger safety. The initial phase of the work is described, and a simulation of a frontal vehicle crash is presented using the model at its present level of development.
