Background: Natural and synthetic fibers are known for their low density, easier fabrication
than metallic in several engineering applications. Furthermore, their structural rigidity is high and they
can be used for advanced applications, such as aerospace applications and automotive industry sector.
Methods: Owing to this in depth, studies had been conducted to evaluate its failure modes and process
of fabrication for axial and lateral crushing behaviour to replace metallic materials. In this review paper,
failure modes and geometrical designs such as shapes, triggering and geometry have been examined,
where these factors are affected on crashworthiness parameters. The main aim of this review article is
the reported work done in crushing behavior and failure modes of natural, synthetic and manufacturing
technique process parameters on fibers reinforced composite tubes.
Results: The results showed that the failure modes and crushing behavior in composite tubes depend on
the type of material reinforced composite tubes and structure.
Conclusion: The failure modes and crushing behavior in composite tubes depend on the type of material
reinforced composite tubes and structure.
