Material and Design interactions in Collision Energy Management 810234

Conventional analysis of energy management works with force, velocity, vehicle mass, and time. The purpose of this paper is to view energy management by analyzing how the material in the structure absorbs energy. To supplement the analysis, strain rate sensitivity data on a variety of mild and high-strength cold-rolled steels are presented and the implications of the results analyzed. Other results from the literature are also discussed.
