One of the important objectives in this research is investigating the behavior on the cylindrical tube structure via computer simulations. When a thin cylindrical structure is experienced an impact loading, the crushing process on impact can only be observed by a high speed camera. Recording the stress and strain data is also not possible experimentally. A numerical approach implementing finite element method with a dynamic-explicit code is an effective solution to observe the crushing process. A thin cylindrical structure found in aluminium can is modeled. A finite element impact simulation is then performed to observe the crushing process sequence and the stress and strain development history on axial impact employing IMPACT application program. An experimental of thin cylindrical structure on axial impact is conducted. The final crushing pattern after the impact is then compared with that from simulation. The result shows that final crushing pattern is in a good agreement with that shown in experiment. The stress and strain histories can be observed from the simulation.
