Development and Validation of Numerical Pedestrian Impactor Models

During the last years a lot of activities have taken place in the European Union in order to improve pedestrian protection. As a consequence the EU Commission and ACEA drafted a Negotiated Agree- ment which is defined in the Industry Commitment and will come into effect in October 2005. In the following of this directive the front structures of all new certi- fied cars will have to meet specific limits in pedestrian impactor tests. In this paper a family of LS-DYNA pedestrian impactor models according to the Industry Commitment will be developed and validated.
