FE-Models

Arup and Oasys have been involved in developing FE model for use with LS-DYNA for over 10 years, and produces its own range of barrier and pedestrian impactor models. We are also distributors for the various dummy models produced by Humanetics , FAT and LSTC.

Working in collaboration, Arup and Cellbond have developed a range of LS-DYNA finite element models based on the aluminium honeycomb barriers produced by Cellbond.

Since the introduction of EU legislation in 2005 pedestrian impact analysis has become more important. However this task cannot be undertaken without the right tools. To this end, Arup has developed a family of pedestrian impactor finite element models for use

Thatcham, the IIHS, and other insurance groups around the world carry out low speed bumper impacts to assess the reparability of different cars. The main barrier used in these tests was developed by the Research Council for Automobile Repair (RCAR).
Arup have now developed an FE model of this barrier for use in CAE analysis.

Humanetics Innovative Solutions (formally FTSS) have been developing finite element models (initial in collaboration with Arup) based on its physical Anthropomorphic Test Devices used in car crash testing since 1995.

DYNAmore GmbH in conjunction with the German Association for Automotive Research (FAT) have developed several validated side impact dummy models based on physical Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD) used in car crash testing.

LSTC produce a range of free available dummy models that are suitable for basic loading analysis. These include both rigid and semi-deformable models.
