Aim of the current study is to design the extra frontal protection system of a car satisfying the requirements of directive 2005/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council. The car frontal protection system is treated as additional energy absorbing element. An analysis of a car-pedestrian crash situation is performed by use of explicit Finite Element Analysis solver and the following stiffness analysis with implicit Finite Element Analysis solver. For modeling response surface and search for optimal solution the LS-OPT software is utilized and some comparative simulations are performed by use of MATLAB. The experimental validation of the models designed is performed.
Key words: Crash safety / impact energy absorption / multicriteria optimization
