Abstract

Mode controlling approach on multi mode optimization for crash safety design of vehicle Q. Yu \ N. Adachi \ H. Yajima '-*, M. Shiratori ' * Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, Yokohama National University, Japan ^Fundamental Research Division, Wako Research Center, HONDA R&D Co., Ltd., Japan Abstract It is important to improve the deceleration characteristic and the cabin deformation for a collision safety design of vehicle. At the same time it is required to reduce the vehicle weight to satisfy the driving performance and environmental restriction. Therefore there is a resistant demand to develop an optimization approach to design a safer and lighter vehicle. The authors have proposed a Statistical Design Support System (SDSS), and brought forward that the SDSS is one of the available optimal approaches for the nonlinear and dynamic phenomena, m this study, they proposed a new concept called as mode controlling approach to keep the side members in ideal buc
