Development and validation of a Renault Mégane finite element model for full-scale pedestrian impact simulations
Report, 2015

In this report, the development and validation of a Finite Element (FE) vehicle model is presented which is intended for simulation of past full-scale pedestrian experiments with post-mortem human subjects. The model is primarily intended for evaluation of the pedestrian Human Body Model (HBM) “Total HUman Model for Safety” (THUMS) version 4.0 but can also be used for evaluation of other FE-HBM models.
