Abstract

Instruments in motor vehicles are sometimes subject to compression and other forces, as during accidents. In well sealed instruments, compression can cause potentially explosive forces to develop which may result in injury to occupants of the vehicle from fragments propelled from the front of the instrument. Good sealing of the instrument is often desirable for hermetic, dust or other reasons.
