  For complex foam-filled structure like the car A-Pillar, it seems that the surrogate model method is essential and more effective. As a typical surrogate modeling technique, response surface method [27] has gained great popularity for solving complex design optimization problems involving contact, material and geometrical nonlinearities [22].Cited by: This free PDF e-book covers: Specifications and tips for reference while planning to work with structural foam molding.

Recent studies showed that foam-filled structures have significant advantages in light weight and high energy absorption. In this paper, a novel bumper beam filled with functionally graded foam (FGF) is considered here to explore its crashworthiness.   Introducing the Structural Foam Molding Design Guide Although it is similar to standard high-pressure injection molding, structural foam molding is unique and offers designers and manufacturers distinct advantages. The most notable is the size and scale of the molded parts that can be produced with structural foam.   For the foam materials or foam-filled thin-walled structures, the SEA has been often taken as the design criteria for lightweight requirements in the literature,,,. It can be calculated by (2) SEA = E / m where m is the total mass of the energy absorption structure. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

  The functionally graded foam-filled tubes with different parameters of m = 0, , , , , 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 were adopted to explore the crashworthiness. To be consistent, the densities of all graded foam-filled tubes at the incident and distal surface are g/cm 3 and g/cm 3, respectively. F. Djamaluddin et al. / Multi objective optimization of foam-filled circular tubes for quasi-static and dynamic responses () and the article of Lu and Yu (). In the case of thinwalled circular tubes under axial - impact, energy absorption behaviour has been .

Caution: Be sure to sit in a chair that provides proper back support. Sitting in a chair that causes you to .   Although the overall performance of uniform honeycomb filled tubes is not as good as uniform foam filled tubes, they significantly enhance and exceed the foam-filled structure through the gradient design. Under high PCF conditions, A-DST, A-SST, D-A-SST and H-LST show better crashworthiness than UFT.
