Impact Analysis on a Car Bumper by Varying Speed Using Composite Material through Simulation

Yellamelli Srinivas, G Satish, P. Chandhrasekhar


The simulation of a bumper is characterized by impact modelling using CATIA V5, impact analysis is done by ANSYS according to the speed that is 13.3 m sec-1 (48 km h-1) given in order to analyze the results. This speed is according to regulations of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, FMVSS 208- Occupant Crash Protection whereby the purpose and scope of this standard specifies requirements to afford impact protection for passengers.

In this research, analysis is done for speed according to regulations and also by changing the speeds. Simulation using Finite Element Analysis software, which is ANSYS, was conducted. The material used for bumper is FRP composites with different play combinations.
