Biofidelic crash test dummy available on Impetus MARKET

PRIMUS breakable

The biofidelic dummy object (PRIMUS Breakable) of AFUS GmbH. The project of AFUS Research Company was developed in close cooperation with EDAG Engineering, Crashtest-Service and the University of Applied Sciences Dresden.


Experimental crash tests are very expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, the demand for simulation models based on the finite element method is increasing strongly. The development team at AFUS is also facing the new challenges of converting the Biofidel-Dummy into a simulation model.
