In this paper, the dynamic implosion responses of ring-stiffened cylindrical tubes under external hydrostatic pressure are reported. The ring-stiffened cylinder models were fabricated from commercial seamless aluminium-alloy 6061-T6 tubes. Six external stiffened models were constructed: three models with three stiffeners, and the other three with five stiffeners. To quantify the effects of stiffening on the structural behaviour, implosion tests were also performed on another three unstiffened tube models. In this study, a total of nine tube models were tested until their failure. Implosion was initiated by increasing the hydrostatic pressure in the chamber until the tubes collapsed, and the effects of different types of pressurising media were investigated: (i) water only and (ii) water and nitrogen gas combined. The implosion pressure pulse near the collapsing tube was recorded during the event. The models with five stiffeners increased the implosion pressure pulse by approximately 3.5 times compared with the unstiffened model.
