Title (EN) ENERGY ABSORPTION DEVICE, ESPECIALLY FOR NON-AXIAL LOADS
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ABSORPTION D'ÉNERGIE, EN PARTICULIER POUR UNE CHARGE NON AXIALE
(DE) ENERGIEABSORPTIONSVORRICHTUNG, INSBESONDERE FÜR NICHTAXIALE BELASTUNG
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an energy absorption device which can be arranged to absorb energy by deformation between a support structure of a vehicle and a damper, the energy absorption device carrying a deformable main profile which has a hollow body-type cross-section. The aim of the invention is to improve an energy absorption device of the aforementioned type in such a manner that the energy can be well carried off even if the forces produced by an accident impact the energy absorption device at an angle. For this purpose, a deformable supplementary profile is provided on the cross-section of the main profile.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'absorption d'énergie qui peut être placé entre une structure porteuse d'un véhicule et un pare-chocs pour absorber l'énergie par déformation, ce dispositif d'absorption d'énergie comprenant un profilé principal déformable du type à section creuse qui porte le pare-chocs. L'objectif de l'invention est d'améliorer un tel dispositif d'absorption d'énergie le plus simplement possible de sorte que l'énergie puisse être dégradée de façon satisfaisante, y compris en présence de forces exercées en biais sur le dispositif d'absorption d'énergie en cas de collision. À cet effet, un profilé additionnel déformable est placé sur le profilé principal en coupe transversale.
(DE) Die vorliegende Erfindung betrifft eine Energieabsorptionsvorrichtung, welche zum Absorbieren von Energie durch Verformen zwischen einer Tragstruktur eines Fahrzeugs und einem Stoßfänger anordenbar ist, wobei die Energieabsorptionsvorrichtung ein im Querschnitt hohlkörperartiges, verformbares Hauptprofil hat, das den Stoßfänger trägt. Um eine derartige Energieabsorptionsvorrichtung auf möglichst einfache Weise dahingehend zu verbessern, dass Energie trotz schräg in die Energieabsorptionsvorrichtung eingeleiteter Unfallkräfte gut abbaubar ist, wird vorgeschlagen, an dem Hauptprofil im Querschnitt ein verformbares Zusatzprofil vorzusehen.
