Abstract

The behaviour of a vehicle at high-speed crashes is enhanced by using active vehicle dynamics control systems. A 6-Degree-of-Freedom (6-DOF) mathematical model is developed to carry out this study. In this model, vehicle dynamics is studied together with vehicle crash structural dynamics. Validation of the vehicle crash structure of the proposed model is achieved to ensure that the modelling of the crumble zone and the dynamic responses are reliable. Five different speeds are selected to investigate the robustness of control system and its effect on the vehicle crash characteristics at low and high speeds with full and offset collision scenarios. A great improvement of vehicle pitch and yaw angels and accelerations at high speed collision are obtained from this analysis.
