Engineering for Safety: Advances in crash test technology

Professional crash tests are one of the important elements of the process of introducing new car models to the market. They allow, under controlled conditions, to verify how a vehicle will behave under the influence of various impacts, analogous to those occurring during dangerous incidents on the road. Currently, car crash tests, also known as crash-tests, are an obligation of car manufacturers wishing to introduce new vehicles for sale. The results of such tests determine whether a car will meet established crash standards, and thus be allowed to be used in a given country. Along with the development of crash test technology comes developments in the area of materials to improve vehicle safety and durability. The approach of auto manufacturers to the car design process is also evolving.
