HVE-CSI WORKSHOPS
 
Introduction to HVE-CSI
Instructors: Daniel Peralta
Times:
  • Part I - Monday, 9:00 AM
  • Part II - Monday, 1:30 PM
  • Part III - Tuesday, 8:30 AM
  • Part IV - Tuesday, 1:30 PM

Description:
This two-day workshop series is designed for the new HVE-CSI user who wants to learn how to use the capabilities of HVE-CSI to reconstruct vehicle crashes and loss-of-control scenarios with the EDCRASH and EDSMAC physics programs. Each workshop builds upon experiences from the previous workshop, so students should plan to attend all parts.

The following material will be covered:

  • Familiarizing Yourself With The HVE-CSI User Interface.
    • Using the Main Menu and Toolbars to efficiently work in the Vehicle, Environment, Event and Playback Editors.
    • Using the Viewer Thumbwheels or Set Camera dialog to adjust the objects displayed in the program window.
    • Learning how your inputs and outputs are saved within the case file and HVE-CSI installation folder.
    • Identifying your standard work flow when reconstructing a crash using HVE-CSI.
  • Creating Vehicles
    • Using the Vehicle Wizard to add vehicles from the database that match those needed for your reconstruction.
    • Editing tire properties, such as slide friction and cornering stiffness values.
    • Editing vehicle stiffness coefficients to match those calculated from crash tests or other reference sources.
  • Creating Environments
    • Working with an aerial photograph or other overhead image file of the crash site.
  • Creating EDCRASH Events
    • General overview of the EDCRASH reconstruction program.
    • How to enter the crash site evidence required for momentum-based and/or damage-based calculations.
    • Understanding your initial results and the effects of changes to your inputs.
    • Real world example - The student will work through an example using EDCRASH to determine vehicle speeds at impact and loss-of-control.
  • Creating EDSMAC Events
    • General overview of the EDSMAC simulation program.
    • How to enter the vehicle and scene evidence required for the simulation of your loss-of-control or crash scenario.
    • Understanding your initial results and the effects of changes to your inputs.
    • Real world example - The student will work through an example using EDSMAC to simulate a loss-of-control and collision scenario involving passenger cars, vans, pickups or sport-utility vehicles.
  • Creating Outputs
    • How to select and print the various Output Reports produced by each event.
    • How to select and display time-dependent Variable Output parameters produced by a simulation.
    • How to select and display Trajectory Simulations produced by a simulation.
    • How to create and save a real-time AVI file of a simulation displayed in the Playback Window.
    • How to access references to validation studies and technical publications that support your reconstruction.

Upon completion of the workshops, the student will have a basic understanding of how to use HVE-CSI to reconstruct vehicle crashes and loss-of-control scenarios.
