Supplemental Modeling Tools

Discover finite element modeling software tools to enhance your use of the GHBMC models.

There are several finite element modeling software tools that can help you get the most out of your license of a GHBMC human body model. Specifically designed for the GHBMC family of models, these tools can enhance your experience with the model by streamlining the setup of simulations, integrating into leading pre- and post-processing platforms, and identifying actionable information generated from simulations.

Metriks PostProcessor

About Metriks

Metriks (beta) is a post-processor for use with the GHBMC models, developed by Elemance and available for any licensee of the model to download and use, free of charge. The current version now supports the -PS models (M50, F05, 6YO), as well as the M50-O, F05-O, M95-O and M50-OS models. Click the download link below to get started; the installation process will include acceptance of the license agreement. Please submit a request for license activation on the Elemance Support page or by directly emailing [email protected].


  • Intuitive graphical user interface for postprocessing 20+ common injury metrics
  • Built-in command-line interface for batch processing multiple simulations
  • Automatic generation of injury metric reports

Primer Positioning Tool For GHBMC

Positioning the GHBMC model in Oasys PRIMER involves using a dummy “tree”. The tree contains post *END keywords that contain information on assemblies of parts within the GHMBC and how they are connected to each other​. These trees allow you move the model around easily in PRIMER​. Dummy trees are now available in PRIMER for all GHBMC detailed models (-O and -P) and are available for any PRIMER user, free of charge. Please raise a request through your local Oasys LS-DYNA distributor or by directly emailing [email protected]

ANSA HBM Positioning Tool for the GHBMC model

The ANSA HBM positioning tool, combining new technologies with legacy software features, offers a state-of-the-art a solution for handling Virtual Human Body Models. The advanced integrated MBD solver and the morphing algorithms of the ANSA pre-processor make the real time articulation and positioning of the GHBMC model as easy as positioning an ATD model. The Biofidelic joint modelling along with automatic mesh deformation will help you achieve realistic model movements and complete a ready-to-run model without the need of pre-simulation.
The HBM positioning tool uses an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use user interface, and is available to ANSA users starting from version 21.1.0. All needed modelling metadata (biofidelic joint definitions etc.) is prepared and validated for each HBM model by BETA CAE Systems and is offered free of charge.

META HBM Tool for the GHBMC model

The META HBM tool provides all the necessary functionality for post- processing results of all GHBMC Models. Running interactively or in batch mode, META creates PPTX and PDF reports including videos and images of GHBM’s kinematics, strain contour plots, elements erosion identification, and injury criteria calculations (Brain CSDM, Abdominal soft tissue organs SED, etc). Moreover, time history results can be extracted from the Occupant Injury Criteria tool and compared to corresponding results of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs), while it is also easy to make comparisons between multiple simulation runs or results from different solvers.
