This paper compared airbag deployment properties between two simulation approaches in LS-DYNA: the thermodynamic-based control volume (CV) method and the Arbitrary-Lagrange-Eulerian (ALE-based) method. The results from airbag static deployment test and head form impact test indicated that the ALE approach is more accurate than CV approach in simulating… (More)
