An original approach to energy absorption for underride guards

Here is an example of a non-patented rear energy absorbing guard design that gives a good look at the benefits of energy absorption versus stiff designs. It outlines cost and associated possible cost savings. Once again you can see that energy absorbing designs are not cost prohibitive. Several design criteria are presented and various designs to meet these criteria are explored.
