The Corpuscular Method Application in OOP Child Constraint System Research and Simulation


Article Preview

One brief introduction of side OOP and TWG test are given. Comparison application of the airbag deployment simulation in LS-DYNA between Control Volume Method(CV), Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian Method(ALE) and Corpuscular Method(CPM) are descripted. CPM theory could describe the gas flow that is necessary for OOP(out of position) research. Three kinds of TWG tests were conducted and acceptable Hybrid Ⅲ 3YO dummy injury repeatability was achieved. The simulation used in side OOP simulation get good correlation results. Influences of many parameters in side OOP constraint system could be studied based on the simulation and test results.
