Modeling and Simulation for Design and Evaluation of Roadside Safety Hardware

Thursday, January 11, 2018, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center
Nauman Sheikh, Texas A&M Transportation Institute, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Roadside Safety Design; and Subcommittee on Roadside Safety Design Computational Mechanics

This workshop facilitates an exchange of finite element (FE) modeling and simulation knowledge among roadside safety hardware design analysts and researchers. It includes various presentations that cover a wide variety of topics related to FE modeling of roadside safety problems: verification and validation procedures, techniques and best practices for modeling various components, and material modeling for various materials.
