Objectives

The aim of this exploratory action is to identify the user needs and technical requirements for an integrated environment for the design, analysis and testing of car-crash behaviour.

The potential market for the integrated environment will be evaluated initially. A workshop will address the challenges of integration and the techniques for collecting the engineer's know-how on a company knowledge-base.

The proposed platform to be assessed by this action will integrate the many complex simulation models in use in car-crash analysis. The benefits of such a platform would:

The action will help promote the integration of the design, analysis and testing within a single environment.

A mock-up of an integrated system will be used to exhibit the capabilities of such systems. The demonstration of engineering scenarios will be recorded on video.
