Design Improvement Driven by CAE for SUV Structural Crashworthiness in Offset Frontal Crash as per ECE R 94
The scope of the project is to achieve SUV structural performance improvement to meet the offset frontal crash safety requirements as per ECE R 94 Regulation by design modifications in different Sub-systems of the vehicle structure suggested with the help of CAE crash simulations. The study can be classified in four main phases mentioned below. The first phase of the development is to conduct a crash test and CAE simulation for the baseline design. The second phase includes correlation activity among baseline test and CAE. The third phase is to achieve improvement by vehicle structure design modifications and new parts in chassis and BIW guided with CAE simulations and design iterations. Finally the forth phase deals with validation of new crashworthy vehicle design by last crash test.
