This paper present numerically the tube response subjects to oblique loading. According to literature survey, there have amount of work on axial loading. However, have of work on oblique loading is available. However, have of work on oblique loading is available. Therefore, this work present the numerical studies on the crushing behaviour of empty tube were subjected oblique loading. The finite element program ANSYSILS-DYNA was applied to use in tube crush oblique simulation. There are two important parameters used which are tube, geometry and loading oblique. According to the present result, crashworthiness aspect increased when elliptical tube geometry is introduced. However, when loading oblique's are increase, the crashworthiness value decrease.
