On Analytical Approaches in Crash Simulation 891975

An overview of engineering methods used in automotive crash simulation is presented. The use of the lumped-mass-spring method (LMSM) and of the finite element method (FEM) as applied to state-of-the-art structural crashworthiness simulations is outlined. The relative merits of these methods in crashworthiness analysis are discussed.
