Cost-effective safety design software

MADYMO is the worldwide standard software for analysing and optimizing occupant safety designs. It is without rival for its accuracy, efficiency and versatility.

Using MADYMO, researchers and engineers can model, thoroughly analyse and optimize safety designs early in the development process. This reduces the expense and time involved in building and testing prototypes. Adopting MADYMO also minimises the risk of making design changes late in the development phase. For new or improved vehicle models and components, MADYMO cuts cost and reduces the time-to-market substantially.

MADYMO Coupling

PSA Peugeot Citroën

" 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. "

MADYMO Product Suite


The MADYMO Solver is a flexible multi-physics simulation engine that uniquely combines the capabilities of multibody (MB), finite element (FE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in a single CAE solver. This makes the MADYMO Solver a highly efficient tool for design and analysis of complex dynamic systems.

Dummy Models

Years of research and development has led to the creation of the most extensive database of crash test dummy models available. MADYMO Dummy Models are famously accurate and also renowned for their computational speed, robustness and user-friendliness.

Human Models

MADYMO human models are CPU efficient, biofidelic and well validated. They provide a tool set capable of human response prediction for a broad range of loading conditions no physical crash test dummy exists for. Recently the MADYMO human model portfolio is extended with so-called active human models, in which spine joint restraints and muscles combine passive stiffness characteristics and active control to realistically represent responses of living human beings.
