Across the world different regulations are applicable for frontal impact, each require a different restraint system approach. However it would be much more cost effective to develop one single restraint system suitable for all global requirements. Flexible and reliable development approach has to be used for quick evaluations of various safety system configurations and conditions. An efficient methodology has been developed to optimize the frontal restraint system for multiple load cases simultaneously, Resultant restraint system specification to specification to meet global targets. The methodology combines the use of testing and MADYMO modelling techniques in combination with advanced DoE (Design of Experiments) analysis to find a solution in the most effective way. An example will be given for a optimised restraint design to meet European and US requirements.
