Three Dimensional Simulation of a Crash Test Series in SIMON Utilizing A, B, C and D Stiffness Coefficients

Real world crash tests and Human Vehicle Environment-SImulation MOdel Non-linear (HVE-SIMON) simulations using the DyMESH model, which allows for three-dimensional vehicle meshes and analyses are presented in this article. Based on the methodology that DyMESH uses to calculate collision forces, the height of the crash becomes a factor and because of this, the stiffness model used by DyMESH is a three-dimensional model that uses A, B, C, and D stiffness coefficients. A comparison between real world crash tests and the HVE-SIMON are also presented in the article.
