Abstract

This study aims to optimise Vehicle Dynamic Control Systems (VDCS) in offset impact for vehicle collision mitigation. A proposed unique 3-D full-car mathematical model is developed and solved numerically to carry out this analysis. In this model, vehicle dynamics is studied together with the vehicle crash structural dynamics. Validation of the vehicle crash structure of the proposed model is achieved to ensure that the modelling of the crumple zone and the dynamic responses are reliable. It is demonstrated from the numerical simulations that the vehicle dynamic responses are captured and analysed and the influence of VDCS is determined accurately. In addition, it is shown that the mathematical model is flexible, useful and can be used in optimisation studies.
