Abstract

A form of structure will always have it’s own mechanical property as the ability to withstand a particular amount of force before failure or collapsing. The collapse load, kN and total energy absorption is to be taken into consideration for this study. This study is to investigate the energy absorption capacity of mild steel cylinder subjected to lateral crushing. There are total of 18 specimens to be tested which consists of 6 specimens with 80 mm diameter, another 6 specimens with 100 mm diameter and the remaining 6 specimens with 120 mm diameter. These specimens are to be subjected to lateral loading using different crushing speed which are 1 mm/min, 10 mm/min and 20 mm/min. Experimental and numerical work been conducted for this study to compare the final results. Theoretical results of energy absorption and collapse load showed a close agreement with the experimental results. Numerical results were found deviating for the collapse load value, but quite similar for the deformation of structure with the experimental results. Data obtained in this dissertation hoped serve in the design of structure in future.
