Bumper is the important part of an automobile vehicle. It used for safety of various front parts of vehicle as well as protection of occupants also from collision of vehicle. We know that the death in accident is very common not only in India but in the world. So the safety of occupants and passengers are primary criteria at the time of vehicle design and bumper play a vital role in safety of occupants. In this research we try to improve the impact strength of an existing car bumper by material optimization in economic way. We also emphasis on the light in weight of bumper to reduce the gross weight of vehicle which is very essential to increase fuel efficiency of vehicle. Creo used for modelling the existing bumper and ansys 16.0 used for meshing and calculation of stress & deformation at FMVS (federal motor vehicle safety standards) velocity13.34m/sec (48kmph) and at IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) velocity17.78m/sec (64kmph) with existing material GFRP and suggest the best material for replace the existing material to improve the overall performance of vehicle on the difference criteria.
