Design Of Energy Absorbing Structures

Design Of Energy Absorbing Structures


Requirements

To design mechanical systems that are able to absorb and/or dissipate large amounts of mechanical energy

The systems should also be able to recover from large deformations


Benefits

Attenuates impact in Automotive and Rail applications where lightweight, high-performance energy absorption is critical for safety.

Protects sensitive shipping contents such as nuclear materials or delicate equipment. Precise crush strength and high service temperatures facilitate use in many environments with minimal impact on the shipping weight.

Provides reliable drop protection that doesn’t require service or maintenance. Limits loads to prevent equipment failure or injury.


Our Solution

Mathematical Modelling has been developed for the double beam honey comb structure.

Force threshold values are calculated from mathematical modelling.

Force threshold increases with increase in Q ratio.

Strain at yield of material - Al 7075 = 0.177, which is more than maximum strain in individual beam elements (emax). This proves that the beam does not undergo plastic deformation, only elastic buckling occurs. Hence deformation is expected to be recoverable.
