Summary In the study, the strengthening effect of aluminium foam in thin-walled aluminium tubes subject to bending load in investigated experimentally and numerically. Bending tests are conducted on foam filler, hollow tube and foam-filled tube. The finite element method is used as well to get deeper insight into the crush failure modes via focusing on the influence from wall thickness of the tube. The obtained information is useful to optimally design foam-filled tubes as energy absorbing devices in automotive engineering. The optimisation results can be implemented to find an optimum foam-filled tube that absorbs the same energy as the optimal hollow tube but with much less weight. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
