Title: ENERGY ABSORPTION STRUCTURE
Abstract:
An energy absorption structure has: a framework member (3) for a vehicle body; an energy absorption member (1) provided at an end of the framework member (3) in the front-rear direction of the vehicle body and constituted of a fiber-reinforced resin; and a load receiving member (17) provided on the opposite side of the energy absorption member (1) from the framework member (3). A breaking section (43) is provided near the end of the energy absorption member (1), which corresponds to the load receiving member (17) and/or the framework member (3). The breaking section (43) breaks the energy absorption member (1) by means of an impact load applied from the load receiving member (17) toward the energy absorption member (1), and as a result reinforcing fibers (47) are broken.
