dc.description.abstract The purpose of this Bachelor’s project is to understand the crushing behavior of hybrid components which is quite a new field and has not been researched enough. As composites are increasing exponentially their presence in almost every industry, the understanding of their crashing behavior is crucial to save people’s lives. For doing so it is aimed to reproduce the test results obtained by Hee Chul Kim, Dong Kil Shin, Jung Ju Lee and Jun Beom Kwon. In their work, they test the crashworthiness capabilities of an aluminum beam. The aluminum beam is then covered with composite layers in different orientations. Comparing the energy absorption and how much the structure deforms for different plies orientation, they were able to assess which plies stacking and orientations are best. This cross-check will be done with finite element softwares. Two different softwares for Finite Element Analysis are used, Abaqus and Pam-Crash. Results between softwares and the real experiment will be compared. Apart from double-checking results, the use of different softwares allows to compare interesting parameters amongst them such as the time-step, calculation times and outputs files sizes. Once the model is validated, it is intended to suggest extra orientations different from those tested.
