Impact Simulation

A study in safety.

Animated graphic of impact simulation

Our accurate simulations of component, subsystem and vehicle behaviours during impact, significantly reduce development time and costs.

As impact simulations involve complex interactions between components in highly dynamic events, our predictive models account for:


Nonlinear material behaviours (yielding, fracture, strain-rate dependence)


Contact and large deformations


Dynamic (inertia) effects


Metallic, non-metallic and composite material behaviours

We maintain a complete library of validated barrier models for all jurisdictions.
