Mobile absorber of kinetic energy when a vehicle hits a stationary or slow-moving truck, used on roads in work zones and during maintenance work
The subject of the project was a TTMA device (mobile absorber of kinetic energy when a vehicle hits a stationary or slow-moving truck, used on roads in work zones and during maintenance work).
SolidWorks software was used for the design work. The numerical model of the TTMA was prepared in Altair HyperMesh. The calculations were carried out in LS-Dyna.
A prototype of the TTMA mobile absorber, meeting the requirements of European standard CEN/TS 16786:2018 for an impact speed of 100 km/h (confirmed by experimental tests).
The exterior elements of a car, such as the bumpers, sills, or spoilers, play a key role in shaping the vehicle’s appearance. They are what we focus our attention on when we are first confronted with a particular car model.Read more
