Origami, the art of paper folding, is often associated with Japanese culture. Implementing- ing origami into products that make lives easier and that achieve desirable attributes is the main aim of the origami-adapted design process. A thin-walled tube such as a trapezoid origami crash box is one such energy absorption device derived from origami. The surface of this tube is pre-folded to develop an origami pattern that is delicately designed which gives rise to an interesting- ing structure on the surface of a square tube. Geometric, compliance, and comparative analysis are made and the two extreme designs, Trapezoidal and Diamond origami crash boxes are compared for their energy absorption capability.
