Crashworthiness proof is a certification requirement by aviation authorities for new aircraft types. The objective of static design is a sufficiently stiff and strong structure to carry bending and torsion during flight and ground maneuvers. High stiffness, however, is critical for good crashworthiness behavior. Therefore, crashworthiness investigations should be included at early design stages of the overall aircraft design process. This paper introduces the crash analysis tool AC-CRASH and shows an approach of integrating it into the preliminary design phase.
