Porsche AG, Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft and ZF TRW. Toyota Motor Corporation participates as Technical Advisor in the TUC project.
The aim of TUC is to setup of a framework and harmonise general and administrative requirements for the implementation of FE Human Body Models (HBMs) in vehicle and traffic safety applications. Therefore, the project partners work closely together to achieve these goals.
Together with the Associated Partner BASt and the Development Partners DYNAmore and ESI the TUC project aims to prepare methods and procedures enabling an agreed and harmonised application of valid virtual HBMs in occupant and pedestrian/cyclist active and passive safety analysis. Furthermore, the project intends to develop a cooperative platform of partners with similar interests as well as to accumulate pre-competitive know-how and experience in the field of application of HBM.
New members are welcome to join the TUC, either as fully entitled Core Partner, as Associated Partner or as Attendee.
