Abstract:

Complementary analytical and empirical techniques for the design of energy dissipater configurations for airdropped items are presented. The techniques are applicable to the use of single-shot, sheet-type energy dissipater materials which have an essentially rectangular stress-strain curve for the greatest part of their deformation, such as paper honeycomb, metal honeycombs, and certain foamed plastics.
