The purpose of this study is to suggest the effective analytical procedure using finite element model for the crashworthiness of motorized trailer of high speed train. The static crush of rectangular section frame is analyzed by experiment and numerical simulation. The equivalent thickness distribution of the aluminum frame ensuring the same energy absorption as the steel frame is obtained. In the analysis of end-on collision of TGV-K, deformed pattern and section forces are obtained, and the effect of crushable zone are examined. The numerical results are applied to the design of motorized trailer of Korean high speed train.
