Development of the PDB WorldSID 50th Model with the German Automotive Industry

In times where simulation methods are well-established in Vehicle Passive Safety Development, it is indispensable to provide a virtual equivalent of current hardware dummies. Thus, German car manufacturers decided to build up a WSID50th finite element model. Due to the experience of former FAT dummy development projects, the processing of the WSID50th model achieves a high efficiency level. The project started with building up a model using the material data of other dummy projects - release version 0. After an immense number of material and component tests the WSID50th model validation level is increased and qualifies the model for production - release version 1. This paper describes the evolution and features of version 1 in detail. There is a detailed description of the individual component test validation and its results.
