The A To D of Car Pillars

  1. 1. The A to D of Car Pillars A sideways look at the car
  2. 2. Introduction to the A-Pillar  <ul><li>An A-pillar is a name applied by car stylists and enthusiasts to the shaft of material that supports the windshield (windscreen) on either of the windshield frame sides. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>By denoting this structural member as the A-pillar, and each successive vertical support in the greenhouse after a successive letter in the alphabet ( B-pillar , C-pillar etc.), this naming scheme allows those interested in car design to have points of reference when discussing design elements. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillar_(car ) </li></ul>Graphic shows common pillars in sedan, coupe and wagon (or SUV car formats  
  3. 3. A-Pillars  <ul><li>The A-pillar along with the C-pillar are the most stylistically interesting for car fans. The A-pillar is in many ways the equivalent of the a human neck line, where the face for the car flows in to the body. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>The other notable aspect of the A-pillar is how it is integrated with the lines of the hood. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4. B-Pillars  <ul><li>The B-pillar play a key role providing strength to the midsection of the vehicle. Many sportier cars tend to not have a B-pillar present. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>The E class family from Mercedes (opposite) shows how the placement and treatment of the B-pillar has remained unchanged through seven generations. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  5. 5. C-Pillars  <ul><li>The C-pillar is often the most heavily leveraged pillar from a styling perspective. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>BMW has made the C-pillar their own with their distinctive curved C-pillar called the Hoffmeister kick that appears in some format in all of their cars. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Coupes also rely heavily on the C-pillar to create streamlines shapes. One of  the most iconic is from the Ford Mustang. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  6. 6. D-Pillars  <ul><li>D-pillar really is the end of the line, in many ways this pillar is designed for the necessity to house the rear door in a wagon or SUV.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 7. How many Pillars?  <ul><li>The VW Bus is a great example of perhaps one too many pillars almost as many as the ABC... </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
