Development and Validation of a Pedestrian Dummy FE Model for the Design of Pedestrian Friendly Vehicles
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011
A Finite Element (FE) model of the Chalmers-Autoliv pedestrian
dummy was developed and validated. The dummy model was used to
• investigate the difference in the assessment of head injury risks by the
dummy model and by an EEVC adult headform model
• to develop and optimise a pedestrian airbag system.
The study showed that the head impact conditions and the calculated head
injury parameters of the dummy model were different from those of the EEVC
headform model. A properly designed airbag system can effectively reduce
head injury risks in a pedestrian accident.
