Side-impact crash dummy simulation

  • 25-Apr-2011 12:15 EDT


Dassault Systèmes releases Abaqus WorldSID (Worldwide Side Impact Dummy) 50th percentile male dummy model from its SIMULIA brand. Developed in collaboration with the Partnership for Dummy Technology and Biomechanics, SIMULIA’s new WorldSID model offers vehicle safety engineers the ability to develop vehicle designs that enhance side-impact protection and reduce injuries to occupants. Moreover, virtual crash tests involving simulation models for the vehicle and dummy can be carried out many times, much faster, and at far less expense than physical crash tests on vehicle prototypes. Due to its enhanced true-to-life design (known as biofidelity), the WorldSID 50th dummy hardware is being incorporated into crash testing regulations around the world, claims the company. The model is representative of the average male in terms of height, mass, and proportion.
