Originally plated steel was used for the entire body of a car, including the bumper. This material worked well, as it was very strong in a crash, but it was very heavy and dented performance. As car engine design has improved, steel bumpers have pretty much disappeared for anything except classic cars. materials are the bumper beam, bumper fascia, spoiler, connecting rod, pedal box system, and door inner panel. The bumper system consists of three main components, namely bumper beam, fascia and energy absorber as shown in Figure 1. The bumper system is a structural component, which contributes to the crashwor-. a system design can be an arbitrary, wasteful activity. This paper illustrates how to use the Manufacturing System Design Decomposition (MSDD) framework to evaluate manufacturing system designs[4],[11]. In particular, the MSDD is used to evaluate the design of two automotive component-manufacturing plants located in North America. when selecting a bumper system. The most important factor is the ability of the bumper system to absorb enough energy to meet the OEMs internal bumper standard. Weight, manufacturability and cost are also important factors that engineers consider during the design phase. The formability of materials is important for high-sweep bumper systems.

Fundamentals of Automobile Body Structure Design Design ocu only D T F vi Front Barrier rear car bumper system. Rear car bumper system has three main components. They are the fascia, beam, attachment brackets and sometimes energy absorber. The fascia is the outer cover. It is attaches to the quarter panels and rear end panel. The energy absorber attaches to the beam. The beam is mounted directly to the vehicle body. Today’s plastic auto bumpers and fascia (front) systems increase design freedom. Plastic engineers can mold the elegant “look” of the vehicle. Thermoplastic olefins (TPOs), polycarbonates, polyesters, polypropylene, polyurethanes, polyamides are the .   The automotive industry is increasingly relying on a systematic approach to materials selection. The choice of materials for a vehicle is the first and most important factor for automotive design. There is a variety of materials that can be used in the automotive body and chassis, but the purpose of design is the main challenge here.

P.K. Mallick, in Materials, Design and Manufacturing for Lightweight Vehicles, Body panels. There are two types of body panels: (i) outer body panels, which include horizontal panels (hoods, deck lids and roof) and vertical panels (door and quarter panels) and (ii) interior body panels, such as wheel house and rear floor. Closure.   Application: automotive body parts, dashboards, wheel covers. 5) Polyamide (PA, Nylon 6/6, Nylon 6) Nylon 6/6 is a general-purpose nylon that can be both molded and extruded. Nylon 6/6 has good mechanical properties and wear resistance. It is frequently used when a low cost, high mechanical strength, rigid and stable material is required.   P.K. Mallick, in Materials, Design and Manufacturing for Lightweight Vehicles, Introduction. The majority of the long or continuous fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites used for automotive body and chassis applications in today’s automobiles is based on thermoset polymers. The principal reason for using thermosetting polymers. Originally plated steel was used for entire body of a car, including the bumper. This material worked well, as it was very strong in a crash. As car engine design has improved, steel bumpers have pretty much disappeared for anything except classic cars. Steel bumpers have many advantages such as their relatively high load carrying capacity and high.
