Acura Body Structure
The widespread use of high-tensile steel and rigid body structure of the RDX enables the vehicle to have a tuned suspension for precise ride and handling, provides a smoother ride, and improved levels of crash protection for occupants.
High strength steel polygonal-shaped frame members are designed to disperse and absorb the load of impact forward and outward in the event of a collision. AW Collision pays particularly close attention to the following RDX's High Strength Steel components that add to the structural rigidity and safety of the vehicle. Repairs and welds made to High-strength Steel are regarded as highly difficult, heating of the components must be carefully monitored to ensure passenger safety.
The use of varying grades of steel in the construction of the RDX’s unit body is key to its stiffness, performance in a collision and light weight. HSS780 grade steel is used in the “box” section of the front, side and rear frame members at the bottom of the body. Additional high tensile steel is used in other areas under the floor, and in the A- and B-pillars and roof rails.
A-Pillar The A-Pillar in many ways is equivalent to that of a human neck line, where the face of the car flows into the body. The A-Pillar is the foremost pillar of the car, it is vertical and supports the windshield from each side.
B-Pillar The B-Pillar strengthens the midsection of the vehicle.
C-Pillar The C-Pillar is the 3rd pillar generally behind the passengers seat, where your rear window ends on the body of your car.
By utilizing high strength steel (39-percent by weight), the RDX exceeds the BMW X3′s torsional rigidity (stress point strength in the event of a collision).
The Acura TL has widespread use of high-strength sheet steel provides benefits in ride handling and overall durability. The TL is a total of 47.6-percent steel, it uses five different types of high-strength steel, two of which (Hot-stamp steel and 980 grade high-strength steel) are used in the TL for the first time. AW Collision technicians are trained in the new repair techniques needed to handle these innovative materials. 2010 Acura TL body structure is pictured below.
Acura TSX vehicles utilize the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. A highly rigid safe body design with a cross-braced roof structure and a safety cage-type rear bulkhead structure. The TSX has A, B & C-pillar separators and thinner sections to improve visibility and strength of body structure.
