Crash test – sitting passenger

This project was done in collaboration with Borcad cz, s.r.o.

The main objective of this project is to verify new design of train passenger seat in term of safety defined by national standards and directions. In those standards safety criteria for different body parts are defined. Numerical simulation could provide valuable insight during the design phase of product development and could be used for design optimization rather than physical test which are very expensive. Commercial FE explicit solver LS-DYNA was used to carry out all simulations.
