Influence Factors of Railway Vehicle Interior Impact Injury
Based on interior configurations of railway vehicle of China and simulation using modeling of MADYMO Hybrid III 50% Dummy, the occupant injury of interior impact in railway crash events is analyzed according the European and American standard. The results indicated that in the face to face seating without table, the injury is serious then face to back and face to face with table .The other affect factors are the stiffness of interior equipment and the distance of seats. It is needed to optimize the parameter of interior equipment to reduce injury risk for the occupants under collision scenarios. At last the suggestions and methods for railway vehicle occupant safety protection are put forward in the paper.
