Title: STRUCTURE FOR FRONT PART OF VEHICLE BODY
Abstract:
A structure for the front part of a vehicle body includes left and right front side frames (40L, 40R) provided with at least left and right front bending sections (61L, 61R), left and right intermediate bending sections (62L, 62R), and left and right rear bending sections (63L, 63R). Due to a collision load (fs) applied to the front end of the vehicle body (11), the left and right front bending sections (61L, 61R) bend so as to protrude inward in the width direction of the vehicle and thereby grasp and restrain a power unit (20) from both sides in the width direction of the vehicle. The left and right intermediate bending sections (62L, 62R) are located at a distance rearward from the left and right front bending sections (61L, 61R). The left and right rear bending sections (63L, 63R) are located at a distance rearward from the left and right intermediate bending sections (62L, 62R), bend outward in the width direction of the vehicle due to the collision load (fs), and absorb collision energy when subjected to a collision with the power unit (20) which moves backward together with the left and right front bending sections (61L, 61R) due to the collision load (fs).
