Simulate behavior of rivets in the crash test

Fraunhofer V0314Steel, aluminum, magnesium, fiber reinforced plastics - cars meanwhile consist of numerous materials. This must be reliably connected to each other. The risk of injury to the occupants may not exceed even if they come loose joints in a crash. How much stress they endure, had so far only vaguely predict. An advanced model of Fraunhofer now provides realistic predictions.
