ABSTRACT:-
For passenger’s safety, crash test analysis provides vital information to design
safety elements for vehicles. This paper focuses on the 40% offset bumper beam crash
test analysis with obstacle, based on the objectives and comparable safety performances
by EuroNCAP. The bumper is fixed with the internal and external crash boxes to absorb
energy developed. The model built using CATIA and discretized with HYPERMESH
while the simulation of crash done in LS-PREPOST and LS-DYNA as a solver.
The results illustrate the importance of indentations in energy absorbent beams for plastic
deformations form in those areas.
