  • Publication number: 20140203590
    Abstract: A structural door module for a motor vehicle door body includes a carrier plate forming a first and second surface. The structural door module also includes a plurality of door hardware components mounted to at least one of the first and second surface in a pre-configured orientation. A handle support is integrally formed from the carrier plate, and provides a cavity to receive a door handle assembly on the first surface.

  • Patent number: 8763308
    Abstract: A structural door module for a motor vehicle door, comprising of a carrier plate with a plurality of door hardware components mounted to the dryside and wetside surfaces of the carrier plate. The carrier plate includes a number of preformed components that allow door subsystems to be pre-mounted to the door module and tested prior to mounting the structural door module in the motor vehicle door body. An energy absorbing area is molded into the carrier plate. Additionally, a protruding arm rest support is designed to collapse during a side-impact collision.

  • Patent number: 8257624
    Abstract: A method for making a porous material, includes melt-blending two or more non-miscible polymers to obtain a co-continuous melt, solidifying the melt to obtain a solid mass consisting of two co-continuous polymer phases, and selectively extracting one of the co-continuous phases thereby creating within the solid mass an essentially continuous pore network having an internal surface. The method further includes replicating the internal surface of the pore network within the solid mass by coating the internal surface with successive layers of materials, and selectively extracting the solid mass without extracting the layers of materials, to thereby yield the product porous material, formed of the layers of materials. The material has a void fraction higher than about 75%, and mainly having essentially fully interconnected sheath-like non-spherical pores and essentially non-fibrous walls.

  • Patent number: 7628446
    Abstract: A rear frame assembly is provided for use in an automotive vehicle extending between upright side walls to define a trunk opening. The rear frame assembly includes a cross car beam extending laterally between the side walls of the vehicle. A sail panel is fixedly secured to the cross car beam. The sail panel includes symmetrically opposite flanges adapted to conform to the side walls of the vehicle to define a path for diverting a flow of water around the trunk opening. The sail panel includes a conically shaped concavity for engaging a conical protrusion on the vehicle for locating the rear frame assembly within the vehicle during installation of the rear frame assembly to the vehicle.
