Abstract:

A shock absorber is proposed, which is primarily designed for parachute airdropping of barrels of fluid. The invention is distinguished by the fact that the load is protected at the moment of landing by a bearing made of wood or other elastic material, attached by means of a band. The center of the spherical surface of the bearing is placed above the center of gravity of the vessel. Author
