Pam-crash 2G is virtual testing software that comprises three main components: a solver offering physics-based models for crash and other impact problems; a visual environment portfolio, a suite of CAE process automation products; and finally, validated compute models.
According to Lars Greve, CAE Methods, Volkswagon Research Group, when his team used the software for front crash simulation with sub frame failure prediction, it could see locally defined models for detailed future analysis. That’s because the software can perform multi-scale coupling using subcycling. It provided more detailed geometrical information, which helped the team obtain a more reliable future analysis. In addition, it reduced computation time compared to standard Pam-crash 2G jobs.
Pam-crash 2G proposes the modeling of advanced materials like honeycomb, super-elastic alloys, plastics, and adhesive bonding. In restraint system design, its Finite Point Method (FPM) addresses how gas flow affects airbag inflation.
