Recently, many engineers actively participate in research and development w.r.t the weight reduction and the safety increase of vehicle body structure to meet the requirement of fuel economy and regulations. However, vehicle design concept related with weight reduction and safety increase is reduced to the design conflict problem. In the paper, the axial and bending collapse test of aluminum extruded beams are performed and the collapse characteristics are investigated. The analysis method to verify the fracture characteristics of aluminum extruded beam is presented and discussed.
