Simulation Optimization of the Crashworthiness of a Passenger Vehicle in Frontal Collisions using Response Surface Methodology 850512

Although computer simulation is regarded primarily as a tool for systems analysis, simulation can also be used in the process of systems optimization. This paper describes recent enhancements to a computer program package which enables the use of vehicle and occupant simulation models in determining the design of vehicles and restraints for maximum occupant impact protection. Also described is an application of this program package to determine the optimal design of a passenger vehicle involved in frontal collisions.
