Register NowWebinar 9:  Crashworthiness Design and Testing of Passenger Rail Vehicles

November 20, 2019  |  12-1PM EST

Topics include:

  • Crashworthiness design and analysis
  • How general CEM capacity requirements are determined using analytical expressions based on principles of crash energy balance.
  • One-dimensional lumped mass analyses are performed for a variety of full train crash scenarios using the proposed CEM design
  • Three-dimensional explicit finite element analysis (FEA) is performed to design and evaluate the full vehicle carbody response
  • Full-scale crash testing of the CEM system

SPEAKER - ROBERT BOCCHIERI
Bob BocchieriBob joined ARA in 2001 and has been the group leader of the Silicon Valley Office since May of 2005. His research has been centered around nonlinear dynamic structure and materials testing and analysis, including full-scale crash and blast testing, large-scale finite element simulations, and fracture and failure analysis. Applications include crashworthiness and transportation safety, human injury modeling, impact and penetration, and blast effects on structures. Many projects have involved large-scale modeling using the explicit finite element code LS-DYNA. Recent projects have been focused on crashworthiness design and testing of passenger rail vehicles, including light rail, metro vehicles and heavy rail commuter trains.
