WORKSHOP - Crashworthiness Simulation and Test

Soluções Práticas de Simulação em Impacto e Segurança Veicular

A Altair Brasil promoverá um workshop ESPECIAL para apresentar sua experiência e seu conhecimento GLOBAL em impacto e segurança veicular e debater com os clientes HyperWorks os desafios impostos pelas novas normas do CONTRAN que entrarão em vigor em 2014 no Brasil, propondo soluções práticas para atendê-las.



O workshop será apresentado em inglês pelo Sr. Giuseppe Resta, mestre em engenharia pela Universidade de Lecce-Itália, e atualmente Gerente Global de Impacto e Segurança Veicular da Altair , especialista em simulação de impacto, definição e implementação de processos e de soluções customizadas para avaliar requisitos de segurança.



AGENDA



FIRST DAY


  • What means safety in automotive, all around the world
  • Evolution of the crash simulation during the past decades
  • What to measure and how to do it
  • Introduction to active and passive safety and a look to future trends
  • Influence of virtual testing on the evolution of the safety and regulation
  • Injury biomechanics, dummy and barrier technologies and models
  • Current crash-rules and regulations

    • Overview of most important rules (frontal, side, head, pole, rear impact, pedestrian protection, rollover,…) in EU, USA, Brazil and further international rules.

  • Tests for consumer protection:

    • US NCAP, Euro-NCAP, Latin-NCAP
    • Tests from insurance institutes

  • Example of manufacturing imposed tests for performance and integrity of vehicle components.
  • Occupant protection systems

    • Primary components design [belt/airbags]
    • Secondary component design [instrument panel, door, vehicle structure]


SECOND DAY


  • A more detailed look to the most important protection criteria in:

    • Frontal Impact
    • Side Impact
    • Pole Impact

  • Presentation of Altair case studies in automotive safety
  • Challenges and opportunities from global platform development local supplier and material base.
  • How to achieve cost reduction while maintaining or improving vehicle performance
  • Focus on subsystems as strategy to optimize automotive safety performance
  • FEA Modeling best practices:

    • Materials for modeling metals, plastics, foams for crash simulation
    • Recommendations selecting mesh, element, connection types.
    • Model checking and validation : energies check, mass check

  • Crash simulation Post Processing
