The most important parameters including material, thickness, shape, rigidity and impact condition are studied as a part of design & analysis of an automotive front bumper to build a crashworthiness design.
Design of vehicle subsystem for lightweight and for safety seems to lead the designer towards unforeseen challenges. This case study analysis some possible alternative solutions for the particular case of the front bumper.
The bumper is the main structural component which is expected to be sturdy enough to absorb the impact energy, in order to reduce risks caused on road. At the same time, it must possess sufficient strength and stiffness to protect the other vehicle components too.
