This study aimed to investigate energy dissipation in train collisions. A 1/8 scaled train model, about one-dimensional in longitudinal direction, was used to carry out a scaled train collision test.

Corresponding multibody dynamic simulations were conducted using traditional and improved method model (IMM) in ADAMS. In IMM, the connection between two adjacent cars was expressed by a nonlinear Cited by: 4.

Crash energy management (CEM) is a design technique that enhances crashworthiness. CEM seeks to control the load path into the car body struc-ture and to absorb the energy with components that are outside the occupied volume.

CEM is commonly understood in the context of automobile designs that incorporate “crumple zones” and passive safety fea. Greenwell, N. (, May). Evaluation of the Enhancing Vehicle-to-Vehicle Crash Compatibility Agreement: Effectiveness of the primary and secondary energy-absorbing structures on pickup trucks and SUVs.

(Report No. DOT HS ). Washington, DC:. Inevitably, vehicular crash accidents have also increased and have become a major worldwide health problem. For better safety circumstances, vehicles’ structures should be able to protect occupants through converting most of the kinetic energy during a crash situation into other forms of energy in a predictable and controllable by: Kelvin model for a real experiment, its analysis and validation.

After model’s parameters extraction a quick assessment of an occupant crash severity is done. Key-Words: Modeling, vehicle crash, Kelvin model, data processing. 1 Introduction. The main objective of this project is to establish a mathematical model of a vehicle collision.

Train crash events can be basically depicted into two phases: In a first phase, normally referred to as primary collision, the initial kinetic energy is progressively dissipated by means of plastic structural deformation resulting from the crash generated impact loads.

In this phase occupant compartmentFile Size: 1MB. The design model is produced using solid modelling/I-DEAS 11 softwares and PAM-Crash is used for the simulations.

The simulation results show side impact protection system is capable of absorbing and dissipating 98% of the energy of a 14 m/s impact involving a m diameter tree.

Shifting the threshold zone of road tunnels with semitransparent tension structures has shown itself to be an effective way of saving energy in regards to electricity consumption, maintenance, and construction materials used in the electrical lighting, thus lessening negative environmental impacts.

Even though the shape of the tension structure has a major influence on energy savings, the Cited by: stiffness real time for optimal energy absorption in different crash situations. Besides that all the energy is absorbed it is also important to manage the intensity during the crash time, because the resulting crash pulse has a large influence on the injury level.

In this book, modeling and simulation of electric vehicles and their components have been emphasized chapter by chapter with valuable contribution of many researchers who work on both technical and regulatory sides of the field.

Mathematical models for electrical vehicles and their components were introduced and merged together to make this book a guide for industry, academia and policy by: representative of these types of large-scale launch vehicle cylinder structures, and that certain behavioral characteristics and failure modes shall be isolated and studied.
