Updated Vehicle Database Now Available

An updated EDVDB vehicle database is now available for Version 8.20 users to download directly from the Support Downloads section of the EDC website. Every vehicle in the EDVDB database is complete with all the data necessary to perform complex 3-D crash reconstructions or simulations. Users know that EDVDB improves results, increases their productivity and saves valuable time.

The parameters for every vehicle in the EDVDB vehicle database are acquired by EDC Engineers. A complete 3-D mesh of the interior and exterior is created from the actual vehicle using a 3-D digitizer. Suspension rates are measured for each axle. Weights are obtained using platform scales at each wheel. Stiffness coefficients are obtained from leading industry sources, such as NHTSA. Other parameters, such as tire data, are derived from actual tests performed at Calspan, UMTRI and other research facilities. The source of every parameter is documented, and an exhaustive quality assurance review of each vehicle is performed before adding it to the database.
