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 ...
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 ...
Design optimization of an automobile torque arm using global and successive surrogate modeling approaches
(SAGE Publications Ltd., 2019-05)
The design of lightweight automotive structures has become a prevalent practice in the automotive industry. This study focuses on design optimization of an automobile torque arm subjected to cyclic loading. Starting from ...
Drop test simulation and surrogate-based optimization of a dishwasher mechanical structure and its packaging module
A drop test simulation of the mechanical structure of a redesigned dishwasher is performed by using a detailed finite element (FE) model. The nonlinear explicit FE code LS-DYNAA (R) is used for the drop impact simulations. ...
Optimum crashworthiness design of tapered thin-walled tubes with lateral circular cutouts
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2016-10)
In this paper, the effects of introducing lateral circular cutouts on crash performances of tapered thin-walled tubes are explored within a simulation-driven surrogate-based multi-objective optimization framework. The crash ...
Experimental and numerical study on the crashworthiness evaluation of an intercity coach under frontal impact conditions
(SAGE Publications Ltd., 2020-11)
In this study, the energy absorption capacity of a front body of a bus during a frontal crash was investigated. The strength of the bus structure was examined by considering the ECE-R29 European regulation requirements. ...
