Pacific ESI - PAM-SAFE


PAM-SAFE is an application-specific industrial software solution used to simulate the effects of restraint systems such as seatbelts and airbags, as well as vehicle occupants.

Seatbelts are the first line of defense in automobile safety. Using PAM-SAFE Belt Generator, you can now easily and precisely model all aspects of a complete seatbelt mechanism, including sliprings, retractors, pretensioners, and their interaction with the occupant.


PAM-SAFE simulates the deployment of airbags through a range of gas-dynamic models, fabric models, and a specific contact interface. You can map and fold airbag meshes using the Airbag Folder and other PAM-SAFE pre-processing tools.

Occupant Models

Alt Text

PAM-SAFE offers a variety of frontal and side-impact dummies. Simple and CPU-efficient articulated rigid-body models are meant for parametric runs, while detailed Finite Element models are intended for design verification.

Interaction with Structures

Car interiors for a complete vehicle structure can be modeled in PAM-CRASH and then fully integrated into PAM-SAFE. Side impact models include doors, padding, seats, or an entire car model. Frontal collision models may include dashboards, kneebolsters, or an entire car model.
