Safety Comes First – Development of a Maxi-Cosi Child Seat Using a CAE-Driven Design Process

Download PDF

When developing a new child seat, safety is
paramount. Dorel Juvenile, market leader in
child safety in cars, was confronted with the
task to develop a new child seat - the
Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl. To investigate
and analyze the best feasible design,
considering the occurring forces during an
accident, Dorel Juvenile turned to Code
Product Solutions, an engineering service
provider that supports their customers
in the development and optimization of
products, using computer-aided engineering
(CAE) tools. Within the development process,
Code Product Solutions engineers employed
the Altair HyperWorks CAE suite utilizing
RADIOSS® for crash simulation, OptiStruct®
for the layout of highly loaded plastic
parts that comprise the reclining system,
HyperMesh® for pre-processing tasks,
and HyperCrash® and HyperView® during
post-processing.
