Simcenter Madymo is the worldwide standard software for analyzing and optimizing occupant and pedestrian safety designs. With pre- and even non-crash scenarios analysis becoming more important for occupant safety, the number of relevant loading scenarios is growing rapidly and the duration of simulated events is increasing. Simcenter Madymo combines multibody, Finite Element and CFD technology integrated in one single solver, with the right balance between accuracy and speed. It includes a database of extensively-validated crash dummy models and human body models. Using Simcenter Madymo, researchers and engineers can model, thoroughly analyze and optimize safety designs early in the development process. This reduces the expense and time involved in building and testing prototypes. For new or improved vehicle models and components, Simcenter Madymo cuts costs and reduces the time-to-market substantially. It offers unparalleled accuracy, efficiency and versatility.
" With the usage of coupling, PSA managed to gain considerable time saving in vehicle developments. The Radioss-MADYMO coupling solution enables PSA to use the same MADYMO dummy and restraint models in occupant safety analysis as well as in the RADIOSS structural analysis. This removed the need to create intermediate FE models of the restraint system, which has lead to reduced development time and higher confidence in simulation results. "
