11:00 Introduction
Rainer Hoffmann - carhs.training gmbh
11:10 Where do Injuries occur - Results from Accident Research
Thomas Unger - Verkehrsunfallforschung an der TU Dresden GmbH
  • Analysis of injured VRUs in frontal passenger car collisions based on GIDAS data
  • GIDAS is a cooperative project between the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) and the German Association for Research in Automobile Technology (FAT). (www.GIDAS.org)
  • Based on GIDAS data, accidents with VRUs are analyzed in this study. As results injury patterns and the linked injury causes will be highlighted.
11:35 Euro NCAP Requirements on the Use of Human Modeling and Simulation
Dr. Corina Klug - Graz University of Technology
  • Advantages and challenges of virtual testing with human body models
  • Application of human body models for the assessment of deployable systems
  • Pedestrian model certification (Euro NCAP Technical Bulletin 24) – Why was it introduced and what is requested?
11:55 LS-DYNA Developments provided for Human Body Modeling
Dr.-Ing. Dirk Freßmann - DYNAmore GmbH - Gesellschaft für FEM Ingenieurdienstleistungen
12:05 Break with online Discussion via Teams
12:35 Development/Preparation of the Human Body Models and Application for Virtual Testing
Dr. Matthew L. Davis - Elemance, LLC
  • Ground up development of a pedestrian model
    • Imaging process
    • CAD
    • Meshing
  • Biofidelity evaluation and validation
  • Applications including certification protocols
13:00 Human Body Models for Pedestrian Protection - Overview
Dr. Karin Brolin - Lightness by Design AB
  • Defining the problem to model
  • Strategy to choose appropriate models
  • Overview of state-of-the-art human body models
13:25 Accounting for Shoulder Muscle Activity in HBMs
Emma Larsson - Chalmers University of Technology
  • Special considerations for the shoulder muscles
    • Muscle routing
    • Joint stability
  • Implementation in an HBM
13:50 Human Model Positioning using Pre-Positioning Simulation Approach
Kai Ikels - IAT Ingenieurgesellschaft für Automobiltechnik mbH
14:10 Real Time Biofidelic Positioning of Human Models with ANSA
Lambros Rorris - BETA CAE Systems International AG
  • Positioning of Human Models is currently extremely difficult
  • We developed a tool in ANSA that combines
    • Advanced Biofidelic kinematics
    • Automatic Morphing
  • We are able to position a human model in a seating position, or even riding position (e.g. motorcycle rider), or move the limbs of a pedestrian as easy as you can do with an ATD model.
  • This is currently available for the GHBMC models but we are expecting to cover all major HBMs by the end of the year.
14:20 LIVE DEMO: Real Time Biofidelic Positioning of Human Models with ANSA
Athanasios Lioras - BETA CAE Systems S.A.
14:40 Break with online Discussion via Teams
15:00 VIRTUAL Integrated Assessment of VRU Safety
Christoph Leo - Graz University of Technology
  • Introduction of the integrated vulnerable road user (VRU) safety assessment procedure in the project VIRTUAL
  • Use of Human Body Models (HBM)
  • Consideration of active and passive safety measures
  • Injury assessment
15:20 State-of-the-Art HBM Analysis for Cyclist Airbags
Prof. Dr. Bengt Pipkorn - Autoliv Development AB
  • Defining the cyclist crash problem
  • Introduction and validation, human body, head, helmet, windshield, and cyclist airbag models
  • Injury reducing benefits by helmet and cyclist airbag
  • Remaining problem with protection of cyclists in vehicle impacts
