Body-in-white crashworthiness

The crashworthiness of a vehicle’s body structure plays a vital role in fulfilling the requirements of legislators, consumer tests and insurance companies. Bertrandt performs CAE simulations with a high energy input, evaluates the results and proposes modifications to improve structural crashworthiness.

Typical load cases

  • Frontal crash
  • Side-impact crash
  • Rear-impact crash
  • Door crush test
  • Roof crush test
  • Rollover test
  • Numerical optimisation
