RCAR Model


Arup RCAR Barrier Model

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.

For more information on these barrier models please contact Arup or the relevant distributor for your territory; details are on our distributors page.
