Tutorials

Every user of HVE, HVE-2D and HVE-CSI receives extensive manuals covering the use of their system software and physics programs. Included in these manuals are tutorials which guide the user through the steps for using a specific piece of functionality or for completing a reconstruction or simulation using the selected program. We have made several of these tutorials available on this page, as they provide an excellent overview for those wanting to learn more about a program before becoming a user.

Show me tutorials for using , HVE-2D or HVE-CSI

The Tutorial section of the HVE, HVE-2D and HVE-CSI Users Manuals present a series of basic tutorials that demonstrate various techniques and capabilities. The purpose of these tutorials is to provide a solid grasp of the fundamentals of using the HVE, HVE-2D and HVE-CSI system software. This is accomplished through a series of high-level, task-oriented procedures using a step-by-step approach.

EDCRASH Tutorial
EDCRASH Tutorial
EDCRASH is an analysis used to reconstruct single and two vehicle accidents. This tutorial illustrates a very common use of EDCRASH to estimate the vehicle impact velocities from accident scene and vehicle damage measurements.
Download the Tutorial from the EDCRASH Physics Manual. (Shown in HVE & HVE-2D)

EDSMAC Tutorial
EDSMAC Tutorial
EDSMAC is a simulation analysis of single- or two-vehicle crashes. This tutorial illustrates a very common use of EDSMAC to perform a time-distance study to evaluate accident avoidability.
Download the Tutorial from the EDSMAC Physics Manual. (Shown in HVE & HVE-2D)

EDSMAC4 Tutorial
EDSMAC4 Tutorial
EDSMAC4 is a simulation analysis of single- or multiple-vehicle crashes. This tutorial illustrates a very common use of EDSMAC4 to perform a time-distance study to evaluate accident avoidability.
Download the Tutorial from the EDSMAC4 Physics Manual.

EDSVS Tutorial
EDSVS Tutorial
EDSVS is a simulation analysis of a motor vehicle (4-wheeled automobile or tuck having tandem axles and dual tires) to driver inputs (accelerating, braking and steering). This tutorial illustrates a very simple use of EDSVS to have the simulated vehicle follow the desired path using the steer table.
Download the Tutorial from the EDSVS Physics Manual.

EDVTS Tutorial
EDVTS Tutorial
EDVTS is a simulation analysis of an articulated vehicle (either a passenger car pulling a standard trailer, or a commercial tractor-trailer vehicle) to driver inputs (accelerating, braking and steering). This tutorial examines a common use for EDVTS to perform a simulation analysis of a tractor-trailer off-ramp rollover accident. The purpose of the analysis is to determine if the rollover was the result of excessive speed or an abnormal loading condition (in this case, the payload CG was rather high).
Download the Tutorial from the EDVTS Physics Manual.

EDGEN Tutorial
EDGEN Tutorial
EDGEN is a kinematics spreadsheet that uses positions and velocities supplied at up to eight user-specified locations (e.g., Initial, Pre-Impact Braking, Impact, etc) to determine the time required to travel between each location. This tutorial illustrates a typical use of EDGEN to perform a time-distance study involving the visibility between several objects.
Download the Tutorial from the EDGEN Physics Manual.

EDVSM Tutorial
EDVSM Tutorial
EDVSM is a 3-dimensional analysis of the response of a unit vehicle to a driver's inputs (steering, throttle, brakes, gear selection). This tutorial is based upon the EDVSM validation study described in SAE Technical Paper 970895, and includes a curb-tripped rollover of a Ford Bronco II. The validation study is extended to illustrate how a tire blow-out at various wheel positions affects the vehicle response. Download the Tutorial from the EDVSM Physics Manual.
EDVDS Tutorial
EDVDS Tutorial
EDVDS is a simulation of the dynamic response of a vehicle towing up to three trailers. This tutorial examines the use of EDVDS to study the controllability of a truck tractor towing a set of 45-foot highway doubles down a mountain road.
Download the Tutorial from the EDVDS Physics Manual.

SIMON Tutorial
SIMON Tutorial
SIMON is a dynamic simulation of the response of one or more vehicles to driver inputs, inter-vehicle collision(s) and factors related to the environment (e.g., terrain, atmosphere). This tutorial investigates the effects of an ABS braking system on a combined braking and steering maneuver.
Download the Tutorial from the SIMON Physics Manual.

EDHIS Tutorial
EDHIS Tutorial
EDHIS is a 3-dimensional analysis of the response of a human occupant during a motor vehicle collision. This tutorial provides examples for two uses of EDHIS. The first example is a low-speed collision, where the occupant motion is simulated in an effort to determine the potential for injury. The second example is a pedestrian impact, where the issue is the speed of the striking vehicle.
Download the Tutorial from the EDHIS Physics Manual.

GATB Tutorial
GATB Tutorial
GATB is a 3-dimensional analysis of the response of a human occupant or pedestrian during a motor vehicle collision. GATB is a graphical version of the computer program ATB (Articulated Total Body). The ATB model was originally developed to model the dynamic response of crash test dummies and, with later modifications, the dynamic response of a human in a crash. This tutorial provides examples for two uses of GATB: occupant modeling and pedestrian modeling.
Download the Tutorial from the GATB Physics Manual.
