Paper Title:
Study of Carbon Fiber/Polycarbonate (CF/PC) Material Sandwich Structure for Vehicle Hood
  Abstract

Traffic accidents are the worldwide problem. Based on many reports in the word, the front parts of vehicle is the most likely to strike at pedestrians when the accident occurs. And the fatal injuries almost occurred to pedestrians when their head impact to the vehicle hood. So it’s necessary to reduce the pedestrian injuries as much as possible to enhance the safety characteristic, one of the most importance criteria for vehicles manufactures. In this study, the effect of sandwich structure with material of carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate (CF/PC) will be concerned as vehicle bonnet change. The finite element model of headform impactor and Honda vehicle model was analyzed detail by LS-DYNA as simulation. The impact between headform impactor and original vehicle model or the carbon fiber reinforced polycarbonate material bonnet vehicle model was executed and the comparison result was shown. This study, the European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee/ Working Group 17 (EEVC/WG17) and NCAP requirements was adopted.
