LS-DYNA Compact: CPM Airbag Modeling

Airbags are one of the most important components for occupant safety in motor vehicles. Their applications ranges from standard airbags for driver and passenger to more specified variants, such as curtain or knee airbags. Every airbag needs to be thoroughly designed for its particular application with to achieve a high-quality occupant-restraint system.

The webinar presents the fundamentals to setup an airbag simulation model in LS-DYNA. In this regard, at first, the corpuscular method (CPM), which is particle method and, nowadays, became a state-of-the-art for all airbag applications due to its robustness and efficiency. Following up, the necessary LS-DYNA keywords, such as MAT_FABRIC or AIRBAG_PARTICLE, are provided and their parameters are explained.

Note that this webinar is a condensed version of our attendance class "CPM Airbag Modeling".

- Material definition (*MAT_FABRIC) and reference geometry
