Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TESTING VEHICLE COMPONENTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE TEST DE COMPOSANTS DE VEHICULE
Abstract
(EN) Impact testing apparatus comprises a support member (34) which comprises a sacrificial energy absorber (14) housed under a metal shell (12). The support member (34) is configured to have impact characteristics which mimic those of a predetermined vehicle part (e.g. car roof). A vehicle component (16) which is entented to be used with the predetermined vehicle part is placed on the support member (34) and impact tested with impactor (18). The arrangement simulates impact testing of the vehicle component $i(in situ) with the predetermined vehicle part.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de test d'impacts, qui comprend un élément support (34) doté d'un absorbeur d'énergie sacrifiée (14) logé sous une coque métallique (12). L'élément support (34) est conçu pour présenter des caractéristiques d'impact qui imitent celles d'une pièce de véhicule prédéterminée (p. ex. le toît d'une voiture). Un composant de véhicule (16), destiné à être utilisé conjointement à la pièce de véhicule prédéterminée, est placé sur l'élément support (34) et testé pour les impacts à l'aide d'un impacteur (18). Le dispositif simule le test d'impacts du composant de véhicule in situ avec la pièce de véhicule prédéterminée.
