Optimisation and validation of full and half foam filled double circular tube under multiple load cases

In this study, numerical results are conducted to determine the deformation mode of foam filled double circular tubes, namely; half foam filled double circular tube (FD), and full foam filled double circular tube (DD) under oblique loading. To validate the simulation and experimental results, two-parameter Weibull probability distribution was used. The proposed function of the multi-objective optimisation design (MOD) process was based on the Finite Element Analysis results. The metamodels in were constructed to predict the crashworthiness criteria of specific energy absorption and peak crushing force under oblique impact loading. Also examined in the study were the MOD problems of the two structure types under multiple impact angles using the NSGA II algorithm. The findings from the study determined that the optimal full foam filled double circular tube had better crashworthiness under pure axial loading. While the optimal half foam filled, double circular tube had more space to enhance the crashworthiness under an oblique impact.
