Abstract:   (19426 Views)
This article investigates the effects of using a thin-walled structure in the chassis front rails in the automotive industry. In frontal accidents, the front rails of the vehicle chassis, increases vehicle crash-worthiness and occupants’ safety by plastic deformation, energy absorption, increasing the crash duration and reducing the load and injuries to the occupants. The objective is to optimize the thin-walled structure of the bumper and the direct beams in the front chassis rails. An explicit FEM full vehicle model with a dummy, safety belts, and air bags are used for the modeling and analysis of the applied loads on the vehicle and the occupants. The FMVSS No. 208 and ECE No. 94 standards are considered for the simulation of a vehicle accident. Finally, the proper model will be selected based on the results.
