Automobile/Aerospace Synergy in Engineering Analysis 911121
This paper discusses the transfer of engineering analytical technology between the automobile and aerospace industries. The role of predictive analysis within both industries is addressed, with a particular emphasis on secondary safety. The use of non linear computer analysis techniques is discussed with particular reference to an accident involving a Boeing 737-400 in the UK in 1989. The accident resulted in the author's organisation performing correlated injury studies by occupant kinematic analysis, which are described in outline.
