Marcelo Duarte,


These files can be used as basis files in the development of a compact hybrid vehicle. The files contains the vehicle itself, the contact, material and control cards ready to be used in a frontal crash test. The FEM files are fully compatible with LS-Dyna. The dummies used in the simulations are the Hybrid 3 - 50th percentile and can be obtained on if you have a valid LS-Dyna license.


Steps to reproduce

These files allow you to make a frontal crash simulation of a compact car using LS-Dyna. To reproduce the results the user should download two LS-Dyna Hybrid 3 - 50th percentile dummy models, position then inside the car and run the main.k file. The dummy models were not provided because they require a valid LS-Dyna license and I am not allowed to distribute them without LS-Dyna authorization.
