Evaluation of the structural performance of a Passenger car was conducted as per SINCAP requirement considering occupant safety, and causes of possible tip-over. A computer simulation model of the SINCAP test was developed to carry out side impact analysis and deep-dive to understand energy plots, section forces, deformation, strain and weld failure study
Bringing improved protection in a side impact was a difficult task, given the minimal structure that is available to absorb the crash energy
Designing stiffer side structures considering injury prevention benefits was a key challenge.
Transferring some of the load from the impacting vehicle or pole across the whole of vehicle was quite tedious
