Abstract : ONE CONFIGURATION OF AN ALUMINUM HONEYCOMB ENERGY ABSORBER HAS BEEN TESTED UNDER CONDITIONS OF VARYING VELOCITY. A curve of energy per unit volume versus velocity is presented to show dynamic variance. The dynamic stress level and volume efficiency of the material are also presented. The appendices give a simple design procedure. (Author)
