A Method for Developing Truck FUP with the Aim of Lessening the Severity of Injuries of Car Occupants 2003-01-2821
In recent years research and development on ‘compatibility’ in the area of collision safety has been proceeding. It is a big issue how to prevent an increase in the severity of injuries of occupants in a weaker vehicle.
With regard to FUP (Front Underrun Protector), we consider it possible to further lessen the severity of injuries of car occupants by simultaneously studying the requirement for collision safety on the passenger car as well as the requirement for strength stipulated by the ECE regulation. Therefore we develop the study method for collision safety structure using an optimizing method.
