THE IMPACT OF THE CONSTRUCTIVE PARAMETERS OF THE BUMPER OVER THE CONSEQUENCES DERIVING FROM THE PROCESS OF COLLISION
With the analysis and synthesis of the process of crashing, the impact of every factor is estimated in the generation and the development of the accident, and conclusions are drawn regarding the impact of particular elements from the vehicle over the consequences from the accident.
The bumper system is a component of the vehicle intended to reduce the effects of the bumps on the front and the rear of the vehicle, its components and the shell. The cost of the damage and the protection regarding the bumper are the main criteria used to evaluate the efficiency of the impact of the bumper system, especially at low impact velocity.
This paper is representing the results of a deducted analysis and an investigation of the influence of the bumper system alongside its constructive parameters to the extent of the damage in low impact velocity. The investigation is primarily relating to statistical analysis of average damage, overall weighted average damage and variations in the amount of damage.
