Validation

EDC places a major emphasis on the validation of its reconstruction and simulation programs. Our standard validation procedure involves the development of a set of control tests that exercise each program option and function. Additional validations are performed that compare the program results with actual vehicle handling studies, staged crash tests or other industry-recognized data. Finally, a statistical analysis is performed to quantify the accuracy of the programs. The result is an honest validation that confirms where the programs work well and where they do not. Publications listed below present the validation of several EDC programs and also some of the source data used for the validations.

To order a publication, please use one of the following methods:

  • Contact EDC Sales by phone at 503.644.4500

  • Contact EDC Sales by e-mail to sales@edccorp.com and provide your name, company name, delivery address and contact phone number along with the Library Reference numbers of the publications you would like to order.

  • Download a PDF version of the document simply by clicking on the link in the title of the publication. (Not available for all documents)
