B Pillar

  • The B pillar is the support structure in the center of the vehicle. It’s located between the A pillar and the C pillar. Manufacturers make the B pillar or the center pillar of steel in vehicles. 
  • Manufacturers weld it to the roof panel on top and the vehicle’s floor pan at the bottom. This pillar provides structural support to the vehicle’s roof
  • The B pillar provides high-level protection both for the driver as well as the passengers in case of an intense impact on the sides
  • In such cases, the B pillar base and the mid-section bear the heavy impact, but the firm stiffness and fracture toughness yield strength that minimizes the damage that could have been caused
