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 ...
Predicting energy absorption in a foam-filled thin-walled aluminum tube based on experimentally determined strengthening coefficient
The energy absorption in a foam-filled thin-walled circular Al tube was investigated based on the experimentally determined strengthening coefficient of filling using Al and polystyrene closed-cell foams with three different ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
