Simcenter Madymo is the worldwide standard software for analyzing and optimizing occupant and pedestrian safety designs, traditionally focused on the development, testing and validation of passive safety systems of vehicles, analyzing pre-crash and in-crash scenarios. Recently, there is increased importance of analyzing non-crash scenarios as well, especially the analysis of the occupant seating positions, which is affected by maneuvers of the automated driving vehicle. Simcenter Madymo combines Multibody (MB), Finite Element (FE) and Computational Fluid Dynamics
CFD) technologies integrated into one unique multi-physics solver, which researchers and engineers can use to rapidly analyze and optimize safety designs early in the development process. This can reduce the expense and time involved in building and testing prototypes.
