MODULAR PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT FOR VEHICLE CRASH SIMULATION. VOLUME I: SUMMARY REPORT, TEST RESULTS AND THEORY
The objective of the project was to develop a computer simulation for vehicle structures under general crash conditions. The program has an user oriented modular structure designed for maximum flexibility in the synthesis of vehicle models. The volume contains recommendations for future development of vehicle simulations; A description of the general program structure, modeling capability, and solution procedure for the simulation program UMVCS-1; The experimental and predicted results for static and dynamic validation tests; A modeling study of an actual vehicle dynamic frame test; The analytical studies on which the modeling elements of UMVCS-1 are based.
