Numerical Modelling of Honeycomb Energy Dissipating Materials

Abstract:

Article Preview

Cardboard honeycomb energy dissipating material (EDM) is used extensively forprotection of cargo that is air dropped. Whilst air dropped containers are deployed withparachutes, a significant amount of energy still requires dissipating on impact with the ground.The specification of cardboard EDM in dynamic applications has tended to be ad-hoc withno thorough understanding of the energy absorbing characteristics of the material. This paperseeks to address this gap in knowledge.
