FE Dummy Models by Humanetics
Human Body Simulation in Crash Testing
FE Dummy Models is a large suite of highly detailed and validated finite element crash dummy models that virtually simulate the behavior of anthropomorphic test dummies used in crash testing to evaluate human injuries.
FE dummy models are virtual representations of their respective physical crash test dummy. The FE dummy models are created to simulate the behavior of a crash dummy in motor vehicle and pedestrian collisions, as well as for aircraft, rail, and military applications. The goal is to record as much data as possible for the dummy responses such as accelerations, forces, and displacements during an impact collision to determine injury risks. The predictive capabilities of finite element analysis (FEA) allow engineers to fully analyze a crash event in a virtual environment. This potentially saves significant costs by better understanding vehicle and restraint performance upfront, thereby reducing the number of physical tests to be executed.
