WEIGHT REDUCTION AUTOMOBILE BUMPER SYSTEMS

Weight reductions in automobile bumper systems were achieved by means of a three phase program: 1. Reduction of bumper reinforcement gauge by use of work hardening renitrogenized steel. 2. Reduction of bumper face bar gauge by use of high formability, high yield strength, inclusion shape control steel. 3. Design changes to minize or eliminate bumper reinforcements. /GMRL/
