Development of a HGV FEM for road safety

Computational mechanics is based on the use of complex finite element codes, that allows the virtual reproduction of real world problems. Regarding roadside safety, the design phase was, until now, based on the use of simplified analysis, unable to describe accurately the complexity of vehicle impacts against safety hardware.
