Simulation Model for Component-Specific Local Load

  • André LeschkeEmail author


In this chapter, a methodology is proposed how a simulation can be set up on the basis of finite elements in order to evaluate the load on the components in the front end during an accident. For this purpose, the front end is geometrically divided, and the simulation model of the vehicle is extended to include sensor measuring points in line with the resulting grid. It is shown how a simple evaluation variable can be generated from the simulation values of the component decelerations.
