Load cell for Automobile Crash Test

Automobile crash test

This helps to determine if vehicles are built safe enough to protect people from traffic accidents or not. Sensors are also fixed directly on the vehicle structure and based on results the crumple zones are designed to minimize the impact on the passengers.

Different types and levels of testing include developmental testing, vehicle structural testing, regulatory and compliance testing. The main applications are vehicle body structural analysis and vehicle compatibility assessment in crashes.

How It Works:

  • Sensomatic recommends using multiple Force Load Cells, which are bolted and attached to the back of a crash wall to measure the force on impact.
  • The automobile crash test is carried out, and the load cells measure forces on all axis.
  • Force result measurements will be recorded and displayed with the customer’s Data Acquisition System thru which all the data is collected and analyzed.
  • The force of impact for each of their vehicle crash testing demonstrations can be calculated by the customer.
  • By grouping the outputs from the load cells, the behavior of various parts of the vehicle can be analyzed.

Automobile Crash Test

Crash tests are performed to evaluate vehicle safety. Crash tests involve vehicles collision in a simulated environment to evaluate their safety. Automobile companies and suppliers continue to develop modern technologies that make vehicles safer and regulatory agencies continue to update safety regulations based on new research studies.

The number of load cells used in a crash test. It varies depending on the position, loading direction, and purpose. Each force sensor is made up of strain gauge that is used to measure the impact forces.

A number of destructive crash tests are undertaken to recreate the most prevalent types of crashes, such as side hits, frontal impacts, rear-end impact forces, run-off-road incidents, and pedestrian impact forces. The impact on both adults and children is assessed. Dummies are used in all physical crash testing to simulate the forces and injuries that a driver, passenger, or vulnerable road users, such as a pedestrian or cyclist, would experience during a crash. The data collected from the dummies are analyzed, together with physical vehicle deformation, on-board dangers, and the functioning of in-built restraint systems, and scores are calculated for each crash test.

A special load sensor is used to record between one and six force or torque axes depending on the area of application used for the abdomen, head-neck, thorax and leg sections. load cells and Acceleration, rotation rate sensors and torque transducers, as well as thorax and abdomen displacement measurement and data collection, all play important roles in measurement sensor technology.

Automakers have been able to get an understanding of the amount of force that injures the human body during impacts by using injury biomechanics and crash testing. This knowledge has helped doctors and engineers find out how to make vehicles safer and deploy the airbags.

This data is important for understanding what works in real-world traffic accidents to keep passengers safe and what does not work to reduce the number of deaths and injuries. Crash tests involve basic inertia, but they also look at how impacts affect organs and tissues in our bodies.

As a result, force and acceleration can determine the stress, strain, and displacement in the body. The force of the vehicle crash tests must be measured on all axes..
