Validation of a PC-Crash Multibody Sport Bike Motorcycle Model
PC-Crash is an accident reconstruction program that allows the user to run simulations with multibody objects that collide or interact with 3D vehicle mesh models. ...The current motorcycle models in PC-Crash are limited to generic-type motorcycles. Furthermore, they are only globally scalable such that you cannot adjust length, width, or height independently. ...The testing results were compared to parameters calculated in the PC-Crash program. Results such as Delta-V, yaw rate and overall post impact trajectories of the motorcycle, rider, and movement of the target vehicle were compared.
