Abstract

Non-linear finite element code ABAQUS/Explicit was employed to evaluate the energy absorption characteristics of concentric circular tubes subjected to impact in the axial direction. Thin-walled circular tube plays a vital role as energy absorber due to its high energy absorption capacity. However, the main drawback of existing tube type energy absorber is… (More)
