The following finite element models are available over the World Wide Web at no cost from the NCAC. This page will be periodically updated as the NCAC and other organizations release new models. For more information or questions about downloading FE models, please contact:

  1. Prof. Steve Kan at e-mail address [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.]

Files available from this page are in Unix tar format, and are compressed using the GNU zip utility. They can be extracted after downloading using the following Unix command:

gunzip < filename.tar.gz | tar -xf -

In addition to the Unix tar format, we now include a Zip format for convenient uncompression on Windows platforms. Most of the archive files contain both a ready-to-run model and a version of the model separated from any other objects. This is done to make it easier for persons using your model to incorporate your model into other simulations. If you will be providing a model for inclusion in this archive, please review the Finite Element Model Archive Guidelines for details on how to prepare your submission.

Model Release Statement

The FHWA and NHTSA through the NCAC have put considerable resources into the development and validation of the Finite Element Model enclosed. We have borne the high costs of developing and validating models to advance the sate-of-the-art in crash impact simulations analyses. We believe that such analyses have great potential to significantly improve the criteria and tools used to design highways and the various roadside elements associated with them. This is expected to ultimately translate to safer and more efficient roads for all users.

We are asking (just short of requiring) that in return for the access to the model(s) we have developed, that you and your organization will contribute towards the validation and further development of these models. It is especially critical that we both learn about problems with these models and the safety insights gained from using them. While we are working on improved web-based methods for you to report any problems discovered or opportunities for improvement, sending messages to the FHWA or NCAC staff noted below will suffice.

The NCAC staff will continue to provide documentation and technical support for the models. We would agree to share enhanced models developed by others, if there are no proprietary concerns. Where model applications or enhancements may have proprietary facets, we are still interested in knowing about the nature of changes to the model and the resulting influences on model performance.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would also transmit copies of reports or papers generated from the use of the models to NCAC library. This continues the sharing of knowledge and the development of overall capabilities of crash simulation technologies.

Similarly, we encourage the submittal of research problem statements to promote the next rounds of research in this area. Some of the research may be possible through the NCAC or pooled fund approaches, or we may float these ideas to other funding agencies.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
