Abstract


In the case of sideone, there are notheless vehiclelations, but none of them defines strength charac-teristics of side doors anti-intrusion beams. After ex-perimetal testing of side doors anti-intrusion beams pro-duced by different manufacturers it was stated, that the beams support very different bending loadings, what al-lows to do an assumption, that a beam being mounted not always fulfils its function or mechanical features are cho-sen unreasonably. Computational models of side doors anti-intrusion beams, allowing preliminarily evaluation of structure stiffness during vehicle impact against side obsta-cle, were developed.
