The next generation of vehicle safety design 

 

Using computer-aided design (CAD) and finite element analysis (FEA), our developers have created a portfolio of products and platforms to enable engineers to run unlimited iterations of real-world crash tests in virtual simulations.

The predictive capabilities of FEA allow engineers to fully understand a crash event in a virtual environment, thus limiting the number of physical tests that need to be executed and saving millions of dollars of development costs that can be diverted to improving safety design for all occupants.

No company better understands the relationship of the physical crash event and the digital twin mirroring these results. Humanetics has worked with OEMs, biomechanical engineers, and the crash safety CAE community since 1995 to produce innovative virtual crash test dummies. Humanetics is the only company in the world that has a full portfolio of both the physical dummies as well as their numerical counterparts. The synergy between these product lines guarantees that our models are of the highest quality and most user-friendly. Through our physical dummy designs and testing, we have direct access to complex geometry and material data. Our research and development involved in the manufacturing of physical crash test dummies feeds directly into our models, resulting in the highest level of data reliability, reproducibility, and fidelity.

Our models are available in the non-linear structural codes LS-DYNA, PAM-CRASH, RADIOSS, and ABAQUS. We also offer FEA modeling consultancy services to help OEMs and test facilities integrate our models with custom vehicle and cabin environments.
