Development and Analysis of Door Side-Impact Reinforcements 720494

A door side-impact reinforcement beam has been developed that allows efficient use of material in resisting side crush loads. The beam section can be roll formed, thus permitting further economies in fabrication. Analytical techniques have been developed that evaluate and handle bending, buckling, and crippling in beam design. This paper covers the development that led up to these results and includes a detailed description of how to apply the analytical methods.
