Abstract

Crashworthiness analysis has become an integral part of the automotive design cycle. Since oblique impacts and vehicle rollover are common vehicle accidents, further studies investigating frame collapse due to bending loading are needed. The main focus of this paper is to study both experimentally and theoretically the effect of shear on collapse characteristics during the bending of cylindrical tubes. Theoretical and experimental results were found to be in good agreement. © 1992.
