Simulation and Experimental Work on a Thin-Walled Structure Under Crushing


Lee, L. S. and Ali, Aidy and Sanuddin, Asmawi and Reza, Afshar (2010) Simulation and Experimental Work on a Thin-Walled Structure Under Crushing. Journal of Failure Analysis and Prevention, 10. pp. 143-151. ISSN 1547-7029

Abstract / Synopsis

This study investigates a thin-walled cylindrical structure subjected to impact loading. Both simulations and experiments were performed to predict the deformation mode and its deformation rate. In the simulation, a threedimensional finite element model of a soft drink can was developed and post-processed using ANSYS and LS-DYNA commercial packages, respectively. The experimental work was carried out by dropping a flat weight from a certain height to crush the specimen, using a drink can to represent the thin-walled structure. A highspeed camera was employed to capture the entire process of the crush. The simulation and experiment showed strong agreement.
