In this paper, we propose a method of modeling for vehicle crash systems based on viscous and elastic properties of the materials. This paper covers an influence of different arrangement of spring and damper on the models’ response. Differences in simulating vehicle-torigid barrier collision and vehicle-to-pole collision are explained. Comparison of the models obtained from wideband (unfiltered) acceleration and filtered acceleration is done. At the end we propose a model which is suitable for localized collisions simulation.
