Design and Analysis of Side Door Intrusion Beam for Automotive Safety
Vehicle side impact is the condition of the two vehicles, in which the vehicles collide with each other at 90° or at some other angle. Space between the passenger and door is very less and there is no room for energy absorption during the side collision of vehicle therefore, side impact beam plays an important role in protecting the occupants. The intrusion of an opposing vehicle depends upon the stiffness of the door, door beam, sill region, b-pillar region, seat cross members. This study is based on the selection of proper cross-section of side intrusion beam for SUV. Side Door Intrusion Beam is one of the main energy absorbing part in event of side impact. This work focuses on comparative study of three cross-sectional profiles and three materials for side door intrusion beam. A detailed FEA & experimental study has been performed to analyze the static and dynamic behavior of different cross section profiles & materials of side door intrusion beam in the event of side impact. Comparative study of side door intrusion beams has been made to find out the force reaction and energy absorption capacity of the beam to protect the occupant from the side collision by using FEA software. Final side door intrusion beam will be testing on UTM for resistance force is validated on three point bending experimental test.
