Energy Absorption in Aircraft Structuresterms of adequate absorption capabilities, energy absorbers in aircraft structures typically have to be extremely lightweight, cost-efficient and beneficial regarding fatigue, maintenance and repair. Current concepts are often based on fibre-reinforced composite materials and their intralaminar, interlaminar and crushing failure behaviour, cellular core structures like honeycombs, foams or foldcore, metallic absorbers with their plasticity behaviour or metallic-composite hybrid solutions.

Simulating the Response of a Composite Honeycomb Energy ...This paper describes the experimental and analytical evaluation of an externally deployable composite honeycomb structure that is designed to attenuate impact energy during helicopter crashes. The concept, designated the Deployable Energy. Absorber (DEA), utilizes an expandable Kevlar honeycomb to dissipate kinetic energy through crushing. The DEA incorporates a unique flexible hinge design that allows the honeycomb to be packaged and stowed until needed for ...

Improvement of crashworthiness behaviour for simplified structural ...The first step, a simplified fuselage model, was suggested by introducing a hexagonal honeycomb energy absorption device into the sub-floor structure without sacrificing the volume of cargo. Next, drop tests for a small-scale fuselage model, both original and newly suggested ones, were carried out to examine the developed design methodology. It was shown that introducing a honeycomb energy absorption device would significantly decrease the acceleration level acted on the ...

Deployable Honeycomb for Landing-Load Attenuation - NASA ...Abstract. An externally deployable honeycomb structure is investigated with respect to crash energy management for light aircraft. The new concept utilizes an expandable honeycomb-like structure to absorb impact energy by crushing. Distinguished by flexible hinges between cell wall junctions that enable effortless deployment, the new energy absorber offers most of the desirable features of an external airbag system without the limitations of poor shear stability, system complexity ...

Impact Simulations of a Composite Helicopter Structure with MSC ...the smallest specimen. In a simulation of a larger structure as, for example a fuselage section, the micromechanical effects, such as delamination etc. loose relative importance. A model of sub-floor sandwich panel is shown in Figure 6. The model consisted of 8746 elements. 1360 elements were normal plate elements. 2606 were plate elements with laminate properties and the rest were solid elements to model a honeycomb core. The general element side on the laminate faces was ...
