Optimization of Vehicle Front for Safety of Pedestrians

Abstract

During impact with an automobile, a pedestrian suffers multiple impacts with the bumper, hood and the windscreen. Optimisation of the car front using a scalar injury cost function has been demonstrated. The results for impacts simulated in MADYMO show good co-relation with Euro-NCAP ratings for existing vehicles. Optimization of the car front to minimise… (More)
