We can see many products with the foldable and deployable function of origami in life, such as solar cell, solar panel and so on. Until now, Nojima has invented a lot of excellent foldable and deployable structures, among which the reversed spiral cylindrical structure (RSC) was parametrically expressed by Hagiwara et al.. The structural shapes of RSC with the maximum absorption energy performance and the minimum absorption energy performance are sought respectively when collapsed under axial loading. The former is studied for the collision strength member of vehicles; and the latter is considered to be applied for the easily folded plastic bottles. Recently, the Tachi-Miura polyhedron (TMP) has been attracting attention for its foldable and deployable properties. On the other hand, Nojima invented an origami shape, can be called Nojima polyhedron (NP). In this study, under the same simulation implementation conditions of RSC, the TMP and the NP are adopted to express the advantages and the disadvantages of diametrical requirements such as the absorbers and the easily folded beverage cans.
