Head Impact analysis is research that can be used as a basis for other research. Head impact analysis is used to determine safety factor, HIC, displacement and others, but in this simulation the focus is on determining displacement using the finite element method. This simulation is designed using LS-DYNA software, a software used to solve finite element model problems. This simulation consists of an analysis of the head hitting the pillar that are made for the simulation process. The output of this simulation is X-displacement and Von-Mises Stress. In modeling and simulating the speed used is 40 km/h (11 m/s) which is the safe limit and one of the most common speed values when an accident occurs.
