Safety Characteristic of HSS in Car Side Impact
The lateral stiffness of a car is 1/12 of frontal stiffness for a typical side crash, and the deformable space is smaller than frontal zone too. In order to study the safety characteristic of HSS in car side impact, the side impact test and simulation were respectively completed. The main factors which influence side crashworthiness were carried out and it’s also the basis for further research on the car body crashworthiness of side impact.
