Abstract
Crash-dynamics research has contributed significantly to the safety, survivability of passengers in transportation accidents, especially in automotive industry. Among thin-walled structures, the application of thin-walled tubes with square and circular cross-sections has gained currency thanks to convenience of manufacture and capability of energy absorption. To identify these characteristics, it has been a wide range of studies in theoretical, numerical and experimental analysis. Throughout the progression and proliferation, moreover, there have been many improvements, corrections in both theories and numerical simulations. However, it is lack of a systematic results and comprehensive remarks. Hence, in this paper, a thorough review will be illustrated and comments, specific guidance will be introduced in theoretical calculation and numerical simulation as well.
