Paper Title:
Correlation Analysis of Computer Simulation with Full-Scale Impact Test for Barrier Safety Evaluation
  Abstract

In order to analyze the feasibility of barrier safety performance evaluation with computer simulation method, finite-element models of various vehicles and barriers were set up and simulations results are compared to multiple full-scale impact test data. The results indicate that all safety performance index such as vehicle trajectory, structural adequacy, occupant risk and dynamic deformation can be extracted from computer simulation and FEA results are coincident with those of tests with error less than 10%. Computer simulation method is proved to be highly feasible for safety performance evaluation of barriers. The concept that simulation models must be verified through tests is stressed and the suggestion that laws and regulations on professional audit and management of CAE engineers should be completed is brought out.
