VALIDATION COMMAND LANGUAGE
This report describes the features and use of the Validation Command Language (VCL) computer program which has been developed to aid the automotive safety researcher in quantifying comparison between impact test results and predictions of mathematical simulations. Anticipated applications of this software are: (1) Manipulation, analysis and comparison of dynamic impact data, (2) Graphical presentation of dynamic impact data, (3) Uses an organizing tool to simplify quantative validation of mathematical models; and, (4) Use as an organizing tool to demonstrate correlation or the lack thereof between experiments and/or theoretical estimates. Additional Formula Interpreter software carries the manipulation and analysis capability a bit further. If a new analytically-based performance criterion is developed, the user can invest the formula as data and retrieve the results without further post-processing.
