Abstract

Abstract A series of over 120 axial crushing tests were conducted on circular and square steel tubes loaded either statically or dynamically. Approximate theoretical predictions for static and dynamic progressive buckling are developed. Fair agreement with the experimental results is achieved provided the effective crushing distance is taken into account and the infuence of material strain rate sensitivity is retained for dynamic loads.
