MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF A VEHICLE DYNAMICS AT FRONTAL IMPACT INTO THE RIGID BARRIER USING A SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION TOOLBOX

Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to create computer crash models (up to the level of the Kelvin model, where the coefficient of stiffness and damping is calculated by implementing appropriate numerical methods: Trust - Region, Lavenberg-Marquardt and so on) of measured real data that are obtained at the frontal impact of a vehicle into the rigid barrier. The process of modeling a vehicle crash can be done in two ways. One of them is related to CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) software including FEA. The other one (applied in this article) is based on the System Identification Toolbox, which contains MATLAB® functions, Simulink® blocks, and a special app for constructing models of dynamic systems from the measured input-output data.
