MODELLING OF CAR DYNAMIC CRUSH BEHAVIOUR IN FRONTAL IMPACT

The dynamic response of individual cars in the full width barrier test describes the behaviour of the fully engaged front structure of each car. A simplified representation of the full width barrier response is combined with hypothesised deformation behaviour of the Offset and 30-Degree Angled rigid barrier tests to provide a model of the dynamic response in these two tests for deformations up to maximum dynamic crush. The responses predicted for four individual cars in the Offset and 30-Degree Angled rigid barrier tests are compared with the actual test responses.
