Side impact crashes are one of the most severe accidents and account for roughly 30% of all fatalities in road accidents involving passenger cars and light trucks. By considering this reason, in many countries legislation has been put into place with minimum requirements for injury parameters in side impact crash tests. Various structures have been used for the purpose of achieving safety such as side bars, crumple zones, crash cones and energy absorbing padding’s. The padding is usually applied and located in vehicle door for securing the pelvic, the abdomen and the thorax area. The amount of absorption of occurred impact versus push load is important to obtain acceptable levels of the injury parameters as stipulated by legislation. This enables designers of passive safety systems not only to save space, weight and cost but also increase safety ratings. In this review paper , we will study the approach from the latest trends in the vehicle and occupant safety by the application of energy absorber in side impact crash . Keywords—side impact crash, legislations, crumple zones, paddings , passive safety
