English term or phrase: crumple zones
Definition from Right Solution, Inc.:
Crumple Zones are sections of the front and rear of a vehicle that are designed to crumple during a crash so as to take as much energy as possible and keep the vehicle's occupants protected.

Example sentence(s):
  • Crumple zones yield during a crash, changing energy from the crash, into heat and sound, which in turn reduces the chances that the passengers in the car will be hurt. Crumple Zones
  • When used in crumple zones, lightweight plastic components can help absorb energy and save vehicle weight at the same time. American Chemistry Council
  • The downside to modern "soft design" crumple zones is that they allow more damage to occur to a vehicle even when the collision is relatively minor and of no major threat to the safety of the occupants, thereby increasing repair costs. Autotropolis

strefy zgniotu


Definition from Wikipedia:
Strefa zgniotu (albo strefa kontrolowanego zgniotu) - określenie stosowane najczęściej w motoryzacji opisująca tę część pojazdu, która w razie kolizji z przeszkodą (także - z innym pojazdem) ulega deformacji (zgnieceniu) pochłaniając przy tym znaczną część energii pojazdu.

Example sentence(s):
  • Wynika to z faktu, że strefa zgniotu o większej długości powoduje, że czas trwania zderzenia zwiększa się, co skutkuje zmniejszeniem sił działających na elementy pojazdu za strefą zgniotu w tym i pasażerów znajdujących się w pojeździe. - Wikipedia
