Research on the AE-MDB CAE Analysis for the Improved EURO NCAP Side Impact Test Procedure

According to the European New Car Assessment Program (EURO NCAP) side impact test procedures for 2015, the European Enhanced Vehicle Safety Committee (EEVC) Working Group 13 (WG13) has made a proposal for an improved side impact barrier: Advanced European Mobile Deformable Barrier (AE-MDB), which subjects test vehicles to more severe conditions compared to the current ECE R.95 MDB in many factors, including higher strength, increased weight and lengthened width. In this paper, development study of AE-MDB Finite Element (FE) model was performed preferentially in order to cope with the enhanced EURO NCAP side impact test procedures. In the second place, analysis and study for AE-MDB side impact were carried out to evaluate its crash severity for compact and midsize vehicles.
