Summary In this thesis the crashworthiness of composite tubular structures was investigated along with the property structure relationships of a glass/polypropylene material. The energy absorption capacity of tubular structures in a number of different testing configurations was made. Two materials; carbon/epoxy pre-preg and a glass/polypropylene dry pre-preg were investigated.
