Course Type: Voc/Tech
Unibody design and construction has created a need for methods of damage analysis, gauging, measuring and sequencing total collision repair. This course emphasizes new technologies.
Competencies
  1. Discuss necessary precautions with hazardous operations and materials according to federal, state, and local regulations (HP-I)
    1. Determine safety and personal health hazards according to OSHA guidelines and the “Right to Know Law” (HP-I)
    2. Use personal safety equipment, hand, eye, ear, and respiratory protection
    3. Select  recommended proper protective clothing and footwear                     
  2. Determine proper measuring tools and equipment
    1. Use a standard (SAE) and metric tape measure
    2. Measure structural damage using tram and self-centering gauges (HP-I)
    3. Demonstrate installation of strut tower gauges on a unibody vehicle
    4. Measure structural damage using a computerized measuring system (HP-G)
    5. Measure structural damage to vehicles using a dedicated (fixture) measuring system (HP-G)
  3. Discuss three measuring methods used to diagnose vehicle structures
    1. Explain “point-to-point” measurements
    2. Explain “tram” measurements
    3. Explain “center line” measurements
  4. Examine differences of vehicle structures
    1. Explain different types of full frame structures
    2. Distinguish differences of impact forces to full frame structures
    3. Explain types of unibody/space frame structures
    4. Distinguish differences of impact forces to unibody/space frame structures
    5. Explain primary and secondary damage
  5. Determine the amount of structural and non-structural damage
    1. Analyze, side sway damage (HP-I)
    2. Analyze, sag damage (HP-G)
    3. Analyze, mash (collapse) damage (HP-G)
    4. Analyze, diamond frame damage (HP-G)
    5. Analyze, twist damage (HP-G)
    6. Analyze and identify crush/collapse zones (HP-I)
    7. Decide the extent of damage to aluminum body panels; repair or replace    (HP-G)
    8. Examine the locations of all suspension, steering, and powertrain component attaching points on the vehicle (HP-G)
