16_IND_Brief_P02 - Development of a Methode for the Assessment of integral Pedestrian Protection Systems - Phase 02

Project: Research project

Description

In passenger cars integral vehicle safety systems for pedestrian protection gain importance. Mitigating the consequences of primary impact does not suffice. To further reduce injury riks, the secondary impact has to be considered. In numerical simulations, though, studying the secondary impact is not straightforward due to its high demands in resources.
In Brief Phase 01 methods have been developed to reduce CPU costs in long-duration simulations (2500 ms). Total CPU time was reduced considerably to approx. 1/3, still one calculation takes approx. 7 days. In Phase 02 the time-costs for calculation shall be further reduced, to enable parameter studies.
