Abstract

This paper presents the multi-objective optimization of aluminum foam double circular tube under oblique load for various load angle and geometry parameters. Thin-walled metallic tubes are used in vehicle structures to absorb impact energy, such as in bumper beams. In this research, aluminum alloy AA6063 T6 foam filled tube which both end were clamped, at bottom as boundary condition and at the top of tube applied quasi-static force of load angle of 0o to 30o with respect to longitudinal direction of tubes. The finite element analysis using ABAQUS code was validated according to the relevant experimental data, and the deformation modes of the tubes were studied. Multi-objective optimization design of crush parameters such as minimum peak crushing force and maximum specific energy absorption were performed using particle swarm optimization algorithm. Different optimal designs for different angles of loading and geometries of double circular tubes was identified.
