Experimental Study on Shock Absorption Effect of Mechanical Device Utilizing Wedge and Rubber
This paper presents an experimental study on the impact absorption effect of the device which utilizes both shear deformation ductility of rubbers and a wedge mechanical system. Two types of experiments, i.e., static and impact loading, are carried out. Rate effect on resistance of the device is checked by comparison between static loading test results. The impact absorption effect is discussed by comparisons of the impact loading test between the impact load and the transmitting load. The other some impact absorption effects are discussed on the impact loading test.
