Partial Al foam filling of commercial 1050H14 Al crash boxes: The effect of box column thickness and foam relative density on energy absorption
The crushing behavior of partially Al closed-cell foam filled commercial 1050H14 Al crash boxes was determined at quasi-static and dynamic deformation velocities. The quasi-static and dynamic crushing of the boxes were ...
Experimental and numerical studies on the quasi-static and dynamic crushing responses of multi-layer trapezoidal aluminum corrugated sandwiches
The axial crushing responses of bonded and brazed multi-layer 1050 H14 trapezoid alaluminum corru- gated core (fin) sandwich structures, with and without aluminum interlayer sheets in 0°/0° and 0°/90° core orientations, ...
Cross wedge rolling of a Ti6Al4V (ELI) alloy: the experimental studies and the finite element simulation of the deformation and failure
The cross wedge rolling (CWR) deformation and fracture of a Ti6Al4Al (ELI) alloy were investigated experimentally and numerically using a coupled thermomechanical finite element model analysis. The experimentally determined ...
Single- and double-layer aluminum corrugated core sandwiches under quasi-static and dynamic loadings
(SAGE Publications, 2016)
The crushing of single- and double-layer zig-zag trapezoidal corrugated core sandwiches was investigated experimentally and numerically at quasi-static and dynamic rates. The buckling stress of sandwiches increased when ...
Experimental testing and full and homogenized numerical models of the low velocity and dynamic deformation of the trapezoidal aluminium corrugated core sandwich
(Wiley Publishing, 2014-06)
The simulations of the low velocity and dynamic deformation of a multi-layer 1050-H14 Al trapezoidal zig-zag corrugated core sandwich were investigated using the homogenized models (solid models) of a single core layer ...
The optimisation of the energy absorption of partially Al foam-filled commercial 1050H14 and 6061T4 Al crash boxes
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-02)
Partially Alulight and Hydro Al closed-cell foam-filled commercial 1050H14 Al and 6061T4 Al crash boxes were optimised using the response surface methodology in order to maximise specific energy absorption (SEA). The ...
