Occupant and pedestrian safety are critical design aspects that determine whether a vehicle can be homologated. Therefore, thorough prototype testing needs to be done before a vehicle can go to market. However, this testing is expensive and can cause significant delays, especially when problems are discovered. For this reason, vehicle manufacturers save prototyping time and cost by doing upfront research and analysis using simulation.
Simcenter offers software solutions for occupant and pedestrian safety simulation. The software comes equipped with a wide range of human and dummy multi-body models that are used to analyze various safety critical scenarios. Due to the computational speed advantage offered by multi-body dynamics compared to finite element analysis (FEA), engineers can design safety systems in a time-efficient manner.
