CLOSURE AND TRIM DESIGN FOR PEDESTRIAN IMPACT 2001-06-0028
To provide protection to pedestrians in collision with passenger vehicles, the design and construction of a vehicle’s bumper, hood and fender panels must be addressed. TNO has undertaken a research project in conjunction with DSM to investigate how this may be done.
Vehicle styling, packaging and an analysis led design process will be shown for the front of the vehicle and in particular the hood and bumper. The recommendations of EEVC working group 10 are used as a target to asses the design proposal’s suitability.
