Abstract:

Work was done on a predevelopment study, design of the prototype case, fabrication of tooling and test equipment, and engineering drawing release. The predevelopment study was conducted to evaluate the design data and concepts to be used in the prototype design. A primary result of this study was the determination that the 1.6 lbcu ft density core is too strong to be used as an energy absorber.
