Paper Title:
Energy Absorption Capability of 3D Braided-Textile Composite Tubes with Rectangular Cross Section
  Abstract

Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRPs) are now under research as crush element because of its contribution in energy absorption. The 3D-textile braiding was introduced in this study as a reinforcement form of fibers. The CFRP square tubes with rectangular cross section were tested in quasi-static experiments. The results show that 3D structure was effective in holding back the propagation of the central crack and the composite tube with a design on the corners could perform better energy absorption capability.
