ASAE Research Laboratory
Automotive Safety and Assessment Engineering
Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering
AE research lab in Automotive Engineering Program at TGGS is emphasized on passive safety, pre-crash and vehicle & component evaluation. Passive safety: vehicle design and human injuries of vehicle occupants and pedestrian based on human model (THUMS) and MADYMO with collaboration. The vehicles are as follows: a) bus structure and body design, b) motor cycle, quality of after-market parts and injury mechanism and c) vehicle with non-add-on safety equipment (i.e. Truck for under-run protection) and interior parts which affects occupant injuries (i.e. Trim parts). Pre-crash: vehicle collision scenario under human behavior, road environment and function vehicle. In this area, the driver behaviors are statically recorded in which the impact velocity can be changed together with the road condition. Functional vehicle is in term of brake performance and system which is dependent on the lack of maintenance and non-OEM brake pad usage. Vehicle and component evaluation: dynamic behavior, component functional test and dynamic test of safety part (i.e. seat, safety belt etc) including vehicle fuel consumption.
