One of the most dangerous type of vehicle crash is a frontal crash. The most serious consequences for a passenger car can happen when it crashes into a freight vehicle. The results of the Finite Element (FE) modeling of a VAZ-21093 vehicle crash test, when it hits a special deformed barrier at a speed of 64 kmph, are presented in "Projects".
The modeling of the frontal crash between a VAZ-21093 vehicle and a ZIL-433362 truck was done by CompMechLab egineers. The passenger vehicle's speed was taken as 64 kmph, while the truck's one as 30 kmph.
