Abstract
We report an experimental study on three new types of tubes inspired by the cross-section and nodes of bamboo with the aim of improving the crashworthiness of three types of cylindrical metal tubes: Bionic Tubes of Variable Thickness (BTVTs), Bionic Tubes with Rib (BTRs), and Bionic Tubes with Bamboo Cross-section (BTBCs), respectively. The EA capacity and deformation modes of the bionic tubes and a cylindrical tube were experimentally...
