Deformation tubes

Deformation tubes are a highly robust and efficient energy absorption component. The energy is absorbed by expanding (or collapsing) a tube over (by) a mandrel, creating a very repeatable structural plastic deformation, that together with the friction determines the deformation force. There is a small difference between force level from static and dynamic tests of deformation tube which indicates that it is not speed dependent.​
