  • windshields as vehicle structure

    Does anyone know how much windshields are regarded as strength for vehicle structure?

    It definitely depends on the particular vehicle, but my understanding is that most vehicles depend on the stiffness of the windshield in helping support the roof. I have heard numbers approaching 25% of the support strength along the forward part of the roof-line is due to the windshield, thus relieving some of the stress on the A-pillars. Curious on the origin of your question. Hope this helps.
