To understand the mechanical interaction between pouch cells in a battery module and improve the crash safety designs for the power battery system of electrical vehicles, a type of simplified battery module consisting of three pouch cells is designed and tested under impact loading with a drop tower. A finite element model is developed to analyze the response of battery module, and a series of calibration and verification tests are conducted to acquire the homogenized material properties of the single cell. Various loading conditions and factors concerning the safety design of batteries under crash scenarios, e.g. impact speed, drop mass and gaps between cells, are analyzed and discussed in terms of the influence on the mechanical, electrical and thermal responses.
