When it comes to crash simulations in the automotive development process, PSA utilizes RADIOSS to perform all of its virtual crash tests. To reduce the number of physical prototypes, it is very important to be able to accurately predict the results early within the development process as close as possible to the realistic behavior. When performing full vehicle crash simulations, the accuracy of the simulation results is highly dependent on the input data from individual components of the vehicle. By including real thickness strength and strain information from the manufacturing process the full vehicle model, or assembly, shows a much higher correlation to reality.
