Arup Cellbond Barrier Models
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.
This range of models covers all the major barriers used in the European
and US Federal regulations and the main consumer test such as Euro
NCAP and IIHS.
The models have been developed to take advantage of the latest developments
in the LS-DYNA code and are designed to provide a robust and efficient
Front Impact Barriers
Side Impact Barriers
Rear Impact Barriers
These models have been developed and validated using test data
- Static tests on the basic honeycomb material
- Dynamic tests on the basic honeycomb material
- Adhesive strength testing
- A range of full barrier crash tests
- Data from existing car crash tests
This validation work has been carried out in both the MPP and
SMP version of LS-DYNA 970 and 971 across a wide range of hardware
platforms to ensure performance and accuracy.
