AE-MDB MODEL

To meet the requirements of higher vehicle weights and new body shapes, the side crash barriers are also constantly being further devel-oped 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 is adjustable by LS-DYNA *PARAMETER

Barrier model vs. load cell wall

Basic features

Easily Adjustable

By setting *PARAMETER GNS_MASS, GNS_XVELO, GNS_ FIX, the barrier model integrates perfectly in your simulation.

Sophisticated

The barrier model was calibrated using several hardware tests with vehicle like lateral structures as impact bodies in different positions.

Adhesive

Adhesive beams, gluing honey-comb to cladding sheets are able to fail under according load.

Gravity

Two versions of the GNS AE-MDB model are available, considering enabled or disabled gravity in your simulation.

Pressure Air Wheels

Trolley wheels with tires of pressure air, getting model motion closer to reality
