A Computer Simulation for Motorcycle Rider Injury Evaluation in Collision

Honda is developing a computer simulation technology designed to predict injury levels from a impact to when an MATD dummy strikes the ground during testing. Correlation of results of full scale impact tests and computer simulation specified in ISO/CD 13232, were examined. As a result, it was validated that the computer simulation can predict injury levels from an impact to when a dummy strikes to the ground. The performance and effectiveness of an airbag system for a GL1800 in 200 impact configurations and 400 cases specified in ISO/CD 13232 was evaluated by using the computer simulation. As a result, the total average benefit was 0.048, risk was 0.004. The highest average net benefit appears at the range from 20 to 25 m/s in the relative impact speed.
