PP Hostacom was characterized by 3-point-bending and also tensile, shear and compression tests at different velocities (FAT Arbeitskreis: Fraunhofer LBF, Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology). Then the simulation model was set-up implementing MAT_SAMP_1 from LS-Dyna. The model was optimized so that the bending and tensile tests were met.
