About this book


Predictive Modeling of Dynamic Processes provides an overview of numerical simulation technology, applicable to a variety of industries and areas of engineering design. Covering automotive crash, blast, impact, and hypervelocity impact phenomena, this volume offers readers an in-depth explanation of the simulation potential for research and development. Chapters include informative introductions to each topic, and explain the specific requirements pertaining to a predictive numerical methodology.

Successfully blending basics of material modeling, crash simulation and impact engineering, this volume fills a gap in the current competing literature available.
