Crash Brackets Development for ECE R29
01 October, 11:10 - 11:35 CEST
This work shows the main steps done in the development phase of IVECO cabin suspension brackets in order to be compliant with new crash regulation ECE-R29 for Heavy Commercial Vehicles. In this activity modeFRONTIER leads and drives different CAE software: hypermesh, Radioss, Nastran and Matlab; in order to fulfill all the targets on the part in exams. Indeed, this element must behave like a crash box, it means big deformation and plasticization in case of a crash event, while in the meantime it must be enough strength in order to survive the IVECO fatigue mission without failure. These are two typical opposite targets, a good challenge for modeFRONTIER.
