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 ...
The effect of percent foam fill ratio on the energy absorption capacity of axially compressed thin-walled multi-cell square and circular tubes
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017)
In this study, the effect of foam fill ratio on the energy absorption capacity of axially compressed thin-walled multi-cell square and circular tubes is investigated. In the experimental study, Aluminum tubes having circular ...
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 ...
