Impact on Eye During Air Bag Crash Using Finite Element Analysis

Authors: K.E.Ch. Vidyasagar, Ravi Varma N.

Abstract: This paper focuses on the eye injuries related to airbags during frontal crashes of motor vehicles. This investigation will address the deformation of the eye part during the impact. The objectives of this work are to observe the behaviour of the eye during the impact, and also try to analysis the simulated stresses and strains to clinically observed injuries. Two eye models were generated by using Finite Element (FE) modelling software (ANSYS v9.0) with identical geometry. Airbag geometry is added to both models and transient dynamic analysis was performed on both the models to simulate impact with the eye. Initial velocity was assigned to the eye models to move towards the airbag and analysis of the eye deformation during the impact at various locations was conducted.
