Arup Pedestrian Impactor Models
One of the most challenging areas of vehicle safety engineering is pedestrian safety. Meeting the new and continually improving legislation is a challenging task. This task cannot be undertaken without using the correct tools.
To this end, Arup has developed a family of pedestrian impactor finite element models for use with the LS-DYNA analysis code. This family consists of:
Following the changes to the European regulation in 2009 there are now two standard headforms used for both the European and Japanese regulations.
These models have been used successfully in vehicle crash programs by various OEMs worldwide.
Automatic Positioning, Analysis and Post-Processing Using Oasys Software Suite
The headform models can be used in combination with the Oasys Suite of software to automatically set up a series of headform impacts, run the models and post-process the results into a report format.
