- Aimed to solve current collision problems between car head and truck rear, collision simulation of a novel type multistage rear protector is achieved, structure has been designed and optimized before. Based on conservation of energy theorem and regulations of dynamic collision test, dynamic explicit finite element analysis method is applied for investigate the device. It is shown that the peak acceleration of the car body is significantly decreased and collision safety is greatly improved when the rear protector is adopted. Through the collision simulation results of dynamic acceleration and maximum deformation, it is indicated that the novel multistage rear protector has excellent energy absorption capability, not only reducing occupant injury from collision but also improving collision compatibility during the car head to truck rear collision.
