A Study on Energy-Absorbing Mechanism of Plastic Ribs 982346

This paper describes development of a numerical simulation method for the FMVSS 201 testing. This method considers not only deformation but also fracture of plastic materials. a simplified calculation method for predicting the load during impact of absorbing plastic materials was introduced from the numerical simulation results. By applying this simplified calculator method trial and error in development would be reduced.
