Development of Frontal Restraint Systems meeting Legal and Consumer Protection Requirements


Belts, belt-load limiters, airbags, steering column, knee bolster, seat ? - only if all the components of a frontal restraint system are in perfect harmony it is possible to meet the different legal limit values as well as the requirements of consumer tests. However, these requirements, e.g. FMVSS 208, U.S. NCAP, Euro NCAP et al. are manifold and extensive, partly contradict each other, or the requirements superpose each other. Therefore it is a challenge for every development engineer to develop a restraint system by a clear, strategic procedure; time-saving and target-oriented with an optimal result. In this 2-day seminar this strategic way of development will be shown. You will learn a procedure how to ideally solve the complex development task of a typical frontal restraint-system design within the scope of the available tools test and simulation. Especially the importance and the influence of individual system components (e.g. belt-load limiters) for the accomplishment of development-sub tasks (e.g. minimum chest deflection) will be covered. In addition the influence of the airbag module design on the hazards of Out-of-Position (OoP) situations is going to be discussed, and a possible development-path for the compliance with the OoP requirements according to the FMVSS 208 legislation will be shown. The possibilities and limits of the development tools test and simulation will be discussed and communicated. Last but not least tips and tricks for a successful overall system design will be part of this seminar. In this seminar you will become familiar with a procedure for the successful development of a frontal restraint system. Furthermore you will learn which development tool, simulation or test, is best suited for the respective sub task. Moreover you will be made aware of the influence of the individual components of a restraint system (belts, belt-load limiters, airbags, steering column, knee bolster, seat, ...) on the efficiency of the entire system. Finally future topics such as the compatibility of vehicles as well as pre-crash preparation and prevention of accidents are integrated into the seminar.

Who should attend?

The seminar addresses simulation and test engineers, project engineers and project managers as well as the heads of development departments in the field of passive safety who work on the design of restraint-systems for vehicles.
