Foam filling options for crashworthiness optimization of thin-walled multi-tubular circular columns
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-07-17)
There is an increasing trend in using aluminum foam-filled columns in crash management systems due to theirlight weight in automotive industry. The main goal of this study is to optimize the crashworthiness of aluminumfoam-filled ...
Evaluation of various multi-cell design concepts for crashworthiness design of thin-walled aluminum tubes
(Elsevier Ltd., 2019)
In this paper, we evaluate various multi-cell design concepts to optimize the crash performances of thin-walled aluminum tubes. The crash performances of the tubes are evaluated by means of two metrics: the crush force ...
Investigation of combined effects of cross section, taper angle and cell structure on crashworthiness of multi-cell thin-walled tubes
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2019-04)
Crash box design has a substantial importance to reduce the fatalities in a frontal crash. In this study, four different types of multi-cell tubes, namely straight-circular, straight-square, tapered-circular and tapered-square ...
