The MAX-Analysis: New Computational and Post-Processing Procedures for Vehicle Safety Analysis

  • David Vinckier


In vehicle safety analysis there is a need for precise finite element simulations of mine blast and improvised explosive device attacks on armored vehicles to support the design process. Because of the multitude of data that is generated in these simulations – even more so when multiple load cases are analyzed for one vehicle – these computations demand for an intelligent tool for summarization and compression of the simulation data. This paper presents the MAX-analysis, a new set of computational and post-processing tools to summarize all the main quantities of the numerical simulations in just a few images.
