A Study of KHST Passenger Safety During Accidents by Computer Simulation Techniques

컴퓨터 시뮬레이션 기법을 이용한 고속전철 승객안전도 해석 및 평가

  • Published : 2003.03.01


The computer simulation techniques were adopted to evaluate the effects of seating positions of passenger under various accident scenarios. The baseline of computer simulation model was tuned by the sled impact tests which conducted under the upright and standard seating positions. This study shows the effect of relative velocity between occupant and struck vehicle while occupant is impacted to a front seat's seatback. Although, base on the current accident scenarios, The KHST is performed well enough to protect average adult male occupants. However, Results from the tests indicate small size occupant or higher impact speed may cause sever neck and femur injuries.
