The effect of cross-section and type of alloy on the performance of aluminum extrusions as door beams was investigated. As a result, aluminum door beams were developed which have bending properties comparing favorably with those of door beams made of high tensile strength steel with a tensile strength of 1470 N/mm2.
Furthermore, a technology to design door beams with the required performance and bending properties dealing with various car models was developed by making the most of the versatility of aluminum extrusions produced in various types of cross-sections.
