A chassis is the supporting frame of a car. It gives the car strength and rigidity, and helps increase the car's crash-resistance through energy absorption. If a car were a human body, the chassis would be the skeleton. During a fall, a person with strong bones is likely to be hurt less than someone with weak bones. The same goes for a car in an accident. The chassis helps keep a vehicle rigid. A strong chassis will keep the back end of a car from falling out of alignment with the front end, while remaining as stiff and unbending as possible.
The chassis is especially important in ensuring low levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) throughout the vehicle. Not only does a reduction in NVH allow for a more pleasant driving experience, but by putting less stress on connecting components it can help increase the life span of these components. The key determinant permitting reduced levels of NVH is energy absorption. By having a high level of energy absorption, NVH levels are lowered, but more importantly, passenger protection can be enhanced in the event of a collision.
Plastic is making an inroad into the chassis market. Innovations in plastic technology have brought about the development of successful chassis applications that would not be possible using any other family of materials.london canada london city london covid cases london covid restrictions london currency london dispersion forces london daily mail uk london weather london dry gin london did you screw this london department stores london dispersion london dungeon london eye london england london england weather london england time london eye tickets london elementary school london elise kress london england map london fog london fog drink london fog jacket london fog luggage london flag london fog trench coat london fletcher london fog latte london games london grammar london gold london gatwick london gifts london gallery london gb london gbr london house london has fallen london house chicago london house rooftop london hughes london hotels london heathrow london has fallen cast london isd london in december london in spanish london is falling london irish london in november london in january london is in what country london jewelers london jeans london johnson london jae london jobs london jewelry london jeans brand london jewelers east hampton london ky london ky weather london king london kills london ky zip code london kids shoes london knights london ky restaurants london lazerson london laz london lazerson movies london local time london latitude london lash london look london landmarks london marathon london map london marathon 2021 london marathon 2022 london mayor london metropolitan university london museum london mule london nfl games london nfl london news london newspapers london neighborhoods london nails london natural history museum london normandy house
