Honeycomb scaled cell size modeling method Honeyomb structure S t S t Mean crushing strength in principal cell axe direction (T. Wierzbicki 1983) 5 t 3  m  16.56   0    S=> Target time step and barrier number of elements adjusted by thickness to cell size ratio
  4. 4. Copyright © 2009 Altair Engineering, Inc. Proprietary and Confidential. All rights reserved. Honeycomb scaled cell size modeling method  Realistic barrier deformation shape  Better prediction of loading events in full vehicle crash test simulation.  Better prediction of biomechanical criterion S t  CPU time acceptable regarding the accuracy improvement => Applied successfully for ODB and FMVSS214/301 MDB

  11. 11. Copyright © 2009 Altair Engineering, Inc. Proprietary and Confidential. All rights reserved. IIHS side MDB: Flat wall test Modeling air effect Entrapped air has significant effect at certain level of crush. The air effect will be introduced by using Radioss monitored volume with adequate pressure function.

Conclusion & perspective  Conclusion  In some test configuration (mainly rigid flat wall cases), air entrapped inside honeycomb cells generates additional resistance to honeycomb structure.  The air effect modeling option has been validated through sample tests provided by CELLBOND.  In order to enhance the IIHS MDB Radioss FE model reliability, air effect has been successfully modeled.  The actual model accuracy has been proven for the hole validation test matrix (pole impact, Sill test …)  Perspective  Carry back the air effect modeling option to ODB and FMVSS214/301  Partnership with CELLBOND : European side MDB coming soon.
