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 ...
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. ...
Multi-fidelity crashworthiness optimization of a bus bumper system under frontal impact
In this study, crashworthiness of a bus bumper system with a special honeycomb beam is optimized under impact loading using a multi-fidelity optimization approach. The crash performance of the bumper system is evaluated ...
Crashworthiness optimization of hierarchical hexagonal honeycombs under out-of-plane impact
This paper presents a numerical study of regular and hierarchical honeycomb structures subjected to out-of-plane impact loading. The specific energy absorption capacity of honeycomb structures via nonlinear explicit finite ...
