Abstract

This paper describes results of an analytical and experimental investigation of the hysteresis and energy dissipation characteristics of metallic tubes subjected to large deformations under plate and line loading conditions. The load-deformation properties are greatly affected by the boundary conditions of the loading and the rate at which the load is applied. The cyclic loading response of mild steel tubes is stable. The repeatability of hysteresis loops shows the potential of employing tubes as cyclic energy dissipaters.
