Conceptual Design of a 3 Wheeler Motorbike – Crash Box Analysis

 

The following series of videos are meant as an introduction into the Crash Box analysis with RADIOSS.

The working steps Modeling (i.e. model setup) - Analysis - Postprocessing are shown and discussed briefly. Please note, that due to simplicity reason the material model is assumed to be elastic-plastic. We leave it up to you to adopt (or test) material models such as, for instance, Honeycomb.

To learn more about RADIOSS you may view the free eBook "Crash Analysis with RADIOSS" or the respective course(s) in the Learning & Certification Program.

Enjoy.
