In this research paper the analysis of Axial crushing of Circular Tubes with Graded Corrugations is done by FEM using ANSYS 15.0 with LS-DYNA Explicit Dynamics. The analysis is carried out on simple cylindrical tubes with geometrical parameters such as different types of corrugations with different sizes, grooved tubes. Various structural analysis graphs were plotted and results show that corrugated tubes have a rather uniform and straight graph as compared to simple cylindrical tubes. Which also establishes that the structural crashworthiness of these corrugated tubes is better than normal cylindrical tubes?
