Protecting vehicles is a demanding task. This is because vehicles are exposed to all kinds of harm almost all the time especially impact during accident. One of the devices that are capable of protecting a car is the car bumper. Since the bumpers are placed in front and in the rear of vehicles, they are able to withstand impact during collisions. In order to do that, the bumper must be strong enough and able to absorb the impact to reduce the damage on the vehicle. There are few factors that lead to the failure of the bumper to perform as the bumper is intended for. This includes the material used for the bumper and the design of the bumper. This report discusses the research undertaken to investigate the effect of impact damage to frontal bumper of a passenger vehicle. This research attempts to study the factor that must be taken into consideration when designing the bumper beam of a vehicle. This will be accomplished using simulation software such as CATIA to design and analyse the bumper. The simulation of the bumper was implemented by using difference types of material and with several designs. The results obtained from the simulation are used as a reference and a guide in improving the design of the frontal bumper. The findings of the project suggest a new design for the bumper and the best material that should be use to make the bumper.
