Denton ATD has selected Red Cedar Technology’s Heeds Professional software to optimise virtual finite element models of crash test dummies (anthropomorphic test devices).

Denton ATD produces physical and virtual dummies that are used to more efficiently design safer vehicles to meet the highest safety standards.

One of the biggest challenges in design for automotive safety is the variability in dummy behaviour and testing conditions.

Denton ATD is attempting to quantify and harness this variability to ensure not only greater test consistency but also safer vehicle designs.

Advanced design optimisation technology has played a significant role in the development and design of Denton’s latest range of dummy models.

‘The use of Heeds and its capability to effectively optimise over numerous variables in complex conditions has increased dummy model accuracy as well as the efficiency of our development process,’ said John Cooper, vice-president of virtual products at Denton.
