Summary A novel method of composite tube manufacture was developed for potential use in automotive crash structures. Tubes were crushed axially under quasi-static conditions and highly repeatable behaviour was observed with an average specific energy absorption of -85kJ/kg. DMTA results indicated that the tubes were fully cured, even when the cycle was reduced to 7 minutes, giving this process huge potential for high-volume production.
