In 2000, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA) and the Japan Automobile Research Institute (JARI) initiated development of the "Flexible Pedestrian Legform Impactor (Flex-PLI)".
The impactor represents a 50th percentile male leg which is struck from the right side. The Flex-PLI (Flexible Pedestrian Legform Impactor) simulates the flexible nature of the human bone. It is fired from a linear guide into the bumper of a static vehicle at 40 km/h for the assessment of pedestrian lower leg and knee injuries.
The model is validated for inverse certification using a newly developed honeycomb impactor. Friction tests were conducted for different material types and contact friction values were updated to improve model performance.
Humanetics offers highly detailed and validated Flex-PLI models in ANSYS LS-DYNA, PAM-CRASH, ABAQUS, and RADIOSS Finite Element codes.
