The Finite Element calculation model was introduced in PC-Crash 10.0 in 2013. In the meanwhile several full vehicle models available from the National Crash Analysis Center (NCAC) have been converted to the format PC-Crash supports and also the calculation capabilities have been improved.
Using these models offers a wide range of applications for the accident reconstructionist. However,
complex models like these need validation so the user knows whether and when the models can be
used for a certain situation and what accuracy can be expected.
This paper presents the different full vehicle models available so far. The individual models are discussed in terms of resolution, accuracy and detail. Different crash tests with instrumented real vehicles are used as a reference for the validation of the Finite Element models. The simulation results in PCCrash are then compared with the measured values.
