Paper Abstract

With the rise in collision accident and the increase in requirement for resistance of blastproof structures in recent years, people attach much importance to the research and application of energy-absorbing device. In this paper the author calculates the specific strength, the specific hardness and ultimate internal force of a circular thin-walled tube by theoretic calculations, discusses the feasibility of using circular thin-walled tube as an energy-absorbing element, analyzes the energy-absorbing properties and the energy-absorbing mechanism through the energy-absorbing experiments using various materials and forms of arrangement, reaches the conclusion that the load-bearing capacity and energy-absorbing properties of multilayered tubes are superior to that of single tube, and puts forward the concept of 'grading tube'.
