The deformation of the front and side structures of vehicles are optimized using an integrated approach by computer simulation of collisions of vehicles of different masses and different speeds of impact. When the costs of additional material and fuel consumption are held constant at present levels, the injury costs can be reduced by 25%. This reduction is possible by optimizing the interaction of the deformation structures of vehicles of different masses.
The project “Economically Justified Passenger Protection” was a cooperative effort of Volkswagen (chairman), HUK-Verband, Porsche and the Technical University of Berlin. It was sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Development.
