Graphics and Animation Related to MVWA-2D Model 840862
This paper describes an interactive graphics processor, VIEW2D, for the MVMA-2D occupant crash simulation model. VIEW2D simplifies the use and operation of the MVM-2D by processing and displaying any of the hundreds of input and output response variables. VXEW2D displays the occupant and vehicle interior on a graphics terminal before program execution for verifying or revising the input data file. It also displays the kinematics and the dynamic responses of the dummy and vehicle at times selected by the user. The main functions and features of V1EW2D are described, and the procedures to make animation on a graphics terminal with refresh mode are presented. Finally, to illustrate the applications of the MVMA-2D and VIEW2D, a study of front structure intrusion effects on occupant kinematics and dynamic responses is discussed.
