An Analysis of Deformation Mechanism in Head-On Collision 680484
A study of the deformation mechanism in head-on collision was conducted. A simple dynamic model of vehicle structure was assumed, and the model analyzed by using a high-speed computer; the solutions were then compared with the experimental results.
Following are the findings obtained from the solutions:
In the case of a vehicle with independent rear suspension, the power train can provide much more resistance to the deformation as compared with a vehicle with conventional suspension.
The strength of front end structure has much effect on the deformation of passenger compartment.
