ROLE OF THE BODY MOUNT ON THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT RESPONSE OF A FRAME/BODY STRUCTURED VEHICLE IN FRONTAL CRASH

This paper presents a comprehensive strategy to investigate the role of the body mounts on the passenger compartment response in a frontal crash. The study included quasi-static vehicle crash testing, development of a component-level dynamic body mount test methodology, lumped-mass computer modeling, and technical analysis. The paper also addresses the means of investigating the effects of the body mounts on the passenger compartment response during a frontal barrier impact.
