Innovative designs of transport vehicles need to be validated in order to demonstrate reliability and provide confidence. It is normal practice to study the mechanical response of the structural elements by comparing numerical results obtained from finite element simulation models with results obtained from experiment. In this frame, the use of wholefield optical techniques has been proven successful in the validation of deformation, strain, or vibration modes. The strength of full-field optical techniques is that the entire displacement field can be acquired. The objective of this article is to integrate full-field optical measurement methodologies with state-of-the-art computational simulation techniques for nonlinear transient dynamic events. In this frame, composite car bonnet frame structures of dimensions about 1.8 m 30.8 m are considered. They have been tested in low-velocity mass-drop impact loading with impact energies ranging from 20 to 200 J. In parallel, simulation models of the car bonnet frame have been developed using layered shell elements. The Zernike shape descriptor approach was used to decompose numerical and experimental data into moments for comparison purposes. A very good agreement between numerical and experimental results was observed. Therefore, integration of numerical analysis with full-field optical measurements along with sophisticated comparison techniques can increase design reliability.
