Bumper with integrated energy absorber and beam

带有整体能量吸收器和横梁的保险杠

Abstract

一种保险杠系统包括带有扁平端部的一管状横梁,还包括具有一后表面的能量吸收器,该后表面带有一凹槽,该凹槽能以嵌套关系配合地接纳管状横梁,该凹槽也包括接合所述扁平端部的平的配合表面。支座接合扁平端部的后部,紧固件将管状横梁和能量吸收器固定在支座上。在一个变型的保险杠系统中,能量吸收器上的角部被成形成在车辆角部冲击时滑动地接合支座侧面,同时接合横梁的一端。在另一变型的保险杠系统中,管状横梁的偏置的两端配合在能量吸收器中的凹槽内,其角部处于车辆支座之间。
A bumper system includes a tubular beam with flattened end sections, and further includes an energy absorber having a rear recess mateably receiving the tubular beam in a nested relationship, with the recess also including flat mating surfaces engaging the flattened end sections. Mounts engage a rear of the flattened end sections, and fasteners secure the tubular beam and energy absorber to the mounts. In one modified bumper system, corner sections on the energy absorber are shaped to slidingly engage a side surface of the mount and simultaneously an end of the beam upon corner impact of the vehicle. In another modified bumper system, offset ends of the tubular beam fit into a recess in an energy absorber, with its center section being between vehicle mounts.
