Finite element and coupled finite element/smooth particle hydrodynamics modeling of the quasi-static crushing of empty and foam-filled single, bitubular and constraint hexagonal- and square-packed aluminum tubes
The quasi-static axial crushing behavior of empty and Al and polystyrene foam-filled Al single, bitubular and multi-tube-packed (hexagonal and square packing) configurations were investigated experimentally and numerically. ...
Modeling the progressive axial crushing of foam-filled aluminum tubes using smooth particle hydrodynamics and coupled finite element model/smooth particle hydrodynamics
As alternatives to the classical finite element model (FEM), a meshless smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method, in which the discrete particles represent a solid domain, and a coupled FEM/SPH modeling technique were ...
Effect of aluminum closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static axial crush performance of glass fiber reinforced polyester composite and aluminum/composite hybrid tubes
The effect of Al closed-cell foam filling on the quasi-static crushing behavior of an E-glass woven fabric polyester composite tube and thin-walled Al/polyester composite hybrid tube was experimentally investigated. For ...
Crushing behavior and energy absorption performance of a bio-inspired metallic structure: Experimental and numerical study
A thin-walled structure inspired from a biologic creature known as balanus was investigated experimentally and numerically under quasi-static and dynamic loads for load-carrying and energy absorption properties. The structure ...
Dynamic crushing behavior of a multilayer thin-walled aluminum corrugated core: The effect of velocity and imperfection
The crushing behavior of a multilayer 1050 H14 aluminum corrugated core was investigated both experimentally and numerically (LS-Dyna) using the perfect and imperfect models between 0.0048 and 90 m s−1. The dynamic compression ...
