Extend Your Crash Analysis Capabilities

HVE and HVE-2D provide users with powerful simulation technologies and features that help them analyze a crash and confidently present their results. Here is a short list of popular technologies from recent updates, including those available in the latest Version 9 release:

High-Definition Video Output • Use the off-screen rendering capabilities of the new Video Creator to produce movies in NTSC (640x480), DVD (720x480) and also high-definition HD (1280x720, 1920x1080) formats. Improvements also include the ability to control the recording speed frame rate to produce slow-motion movies directly in the Video Creator.

DyMESH Version 3 Enhancements DyMESH now computes collision forces and moments between the wheel(s) and the body and/or wheels of another vehicle. An extended, third-order force vs. crush algorithm that includes crush saturation, and an improved smoothing algorithm are also included.

DamageStudio for HVE-2D and EDSMAC4 • DamageStudio is available as an option for both HVE and HVE-2D users. In addition to SIMON/DyMESH simulations, EDSMAC4 supports DamageStudio, allowing HVE-2D users to visualize their collision data, and correlate collision damage with the kinetics, delta-V, acceleration and other important collision parameters from their simulations.

HVE Electronic Stability Systems (ESS) Model • The model provides crash reconstructionists the ability to simulate motor vehicle crashes involving loss-of-control due to poor driving conditions or driver overreaction during an emergency.

HVE Driver Model Path Visualization • The path that the HVE Driver Model attempts to follow is now visualized directly in the event. Once the user establishes the attempted path by placing targets at key positions, the attempted path calculated by the spline algorithm is displayed as a dotted line.

HVE Brake Designer Stroke Factor • The HVE Brake Designer for S-Cam brakes now includes a Stroke Factor vs. Stroke table, replacing the original, bi-linear method. The resulting table allows the user to more precisely reflect the actual Stroke Factor vs. Stroke relationship for their vehicle's S-Cam brakes.

Lateral Load Transfer Modeling • The Lateral Load Transfer Coefficients are editable, allowing control over Roll-Couple Distribution inputs used by 2-D physics models, such as EDSVS, EDVTS and EDSMAC4.

Steady State Handling Properties • The user can now easily display the selected vehicle's handling properties for Total Understeer Gradient, Steering Wheel Sensitivity, Roll Gradient, Roll Couple Distribution, Weight Distribution and Static Weight on Front and Rear Tires, directly in the Vehicle Editor using the new Handling menu option.
