Details
Document Number: J1571_198705
Revision Number:
Title
Inspection of Energy Absorbing Bumper Mounts
Scope
Since 1973, regulations established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have required automobile manufacturers to equip all passenger cars with 2.5 - 5 mph energy absorbing bumper systems. The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to provide guidelines which will help to determine the nature and extent of damage a hydraulic or mechanical energy absorber has received, after the bumper system has been involved in a collision. It is also to suggest appropriate repair procedures for energy absorbers that have sustained minor damage and are repairable.
