Title (EN) MOTOR VEHICLE WITH A SECONDARY CHASSIS CAPABLE OF SLIDING BACKWARDS ON A MAIN CHASSIS FOLLOWING A HEAD-ON COLLISION
(FR) VEHICULE AUTOMOBILE COMPORTANT UN CHASSIS SECONDAIRE POUVANT COULISSER VERS L'ARRIERE SUR UN CHASSIS PRINCIPAL SUITE A UN CHOC AVANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A vehicle comprising, in addition to a main chassis, a secondary chassis (5) supporting the floor (10) and the seats (11, 12) of the vehicle. The secondary chassis is rigidly connected to a crossbar (9') and arranged to be slidable relative to the main chassis when the crossbar is struck by a substantially frontal impact. As a result, the effects of a frontal impact on passengers may be greatly reduced as the seats are driven backwards at a speed that is equal and opposite to that of the main chassis following the impact. The above arrangement may used in conventional motor vehicles fitted with safety devices such as seat belts, air bags, and headrests.
(FR)Le présent véhicule contient, outre son châssis principal, un châssis secondaire (5) portant le plancher (10) et les sièges (11, 12) du véhicule. Ce châssis secondaire est solidaire d'une barre transversale (9') et est agencé de façon à pouvoir coulisser par rapport au châssis principal lors d'un choc sensiblement frontal agissant sur ladite barre transversale. L'invention permet de neutraliser, dans une très large mesure, les effets d'un choc frontal sur les passagers, les sièges étant repoussés en arrière à une vitesse égale et opposée à celle du châssis principal après le choc. L'invention s'applique notamment aux véhicules automobiles de structure usuelle munis de dispositifs de sécurité, tels que ceintures, coussins à air, appuis-tête.
