RailSafe Dummy by GRM Consulting
Advanced Dummy for Rail and Seating Applications
The RailSafe (RS) Dummy finite element (FE) model supports the development of train tables and seats as defined in the Rail Standard GM/RT2100. This standard was created by the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB), TRL, and DeltaRail, and it defined the Hybrid III RS rail-variant research crash test dummy between 2002 and 2005. The dummy was based on the standard Hybrid III dummy used throughout the automotive industry, with various modifications to the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis.
The resulting device has been used repeatedly and in 2015, GRM chose to develop an FE model of the device to support the virtual development of train seats and tables. The Altair® Radioss® FE model of the RS Dummy is a true digital twin capable of accurately representing the physical device.
