Abstract:

Article Preview

As part of a strategy for reducing the risk of rollover crashes and the significant injuries resulting from those crashes the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proposing changes to its former roof crush standard (FMVSS 216). This paper provides an overview of the substantial benefits of utilizing structural reinforce parts as a cost-effective means of significantly improving roof crush performance. In the past several years structural reinforced parts have gone through the transformation from interesting concept to viable alternative for the improvement of vehicle structures. Finally, this paper will introduce study investigated the utilization of these types of products as both a stand-alone solution and as part of a “hybrid” solution coupled with traditional metal solutions.
