Paper Abstract

In order to study the possibility of utilizing the in-plane dynamic property of aluminum honeycombs to soft shock absorbers in a man-to-car impact or a man-to-machine impact environment, dynamic responses of aluminum honeycombs of various cell size and cell number to the in-plane and uni-directional impact loading were investigated experimentally. A high-speed video camera and an acceleration pickup were used to investigate the deformation process and the shock absorption characteristics.
