To meet the requirements of higher vehicle weights and new body shapes, side crash barriers are constantly being enhanced by the NCAPs. Together with the far-side load case, for example, the AE-MDB. This model follows the latest developments of the hardware barrier.
GNS AE-MDB model according to the latest AE-MDB specfication
- Adjusted block stiffnesses with prescribed performance corridors
- Two versions are available, considering enabled or disabled gravity in your simulation
- Model mass, velocity and boundary condition are adjustable using LS-DYNA *PARAMETER
Easily Adjustable Parameters
By setting *PARAMETER GNS_MASS, GNS_XVELO, GNS_ FIX, the barrier model integrates perfectly into your simulation.
The barrier model was calibrated using several hardware tests that employed vehicle-like lateral structures functioning as impact bodies, positioned at different locations.
Adhesive beams, gluing honeycomb to cladding sheets, are able to fail under the appropriate load.
Two versions of the GNS AE-MDB model are available, considering enabled or disabled gravity in your simulation.
Pressurized Air Wheels
Trolley wheels with pressurized air tires, allowing more realistic model motion.
