Description is given on the construction and operation of a novel and efficient energy dissipating device. The shock absorber is composed of ten basic components. Frictional forces that convert kinetic energy to heat are produced by impelling springs that apply pressure between the bronze friction plungers and the housing. A design example with given requirements on absorbed energy, working stroke, and preload is illustrated in a five-step procedure. Author
