Optimum design of high-performance vehicle crash-box

Accidents concluded with injuries and deaths which are related with the increase in the number of vehicles are force engineers to design and manufacture much safer vehicles. Nowadays, a lot of research works have been conducted in the field of crashworthiness in order to define crash performance of vehicles and crash boxes. In this study, crash boxes tested in numerical for frontal impact of vehicles. Numerical studies include determination of energy absorption characteristics of different geometries of crash boxes. In addition, these studies include making changes in existing profiles with wall thickness of crash boxes, changing the positions of some of the profiles and adding new profiles.
