In this paper, collapse test of thin-walled structures, which are widely used in the vehicle members is carried out to observe the dependence of cross-sectional forms and materials on the absorbed energy in the viewpoint of crashworthiness. Also, specimens consist of two kinds (Al, CFRP) with various thickness. Comparisons of circular specimens are made to find characteristics of the different specimens on the absorption ability according to specimen thickness and materials.
