Abstract:

The scope of this study covers the optimization of materials and structures of cellular aluminum with respect to applications requiring controlled dissipation of kinetic energy. A design of a linear energy dissipation system is suggested, and its effective operation demonstrated. Conclusions are presented relative to the effect of material properties on energy dissipation characteristics.
