Experimental work on the possible use of cubical space trusses as energy absorbers is described. To this end the crushing behavior of single cubical space trusses welded from mild steel bars was studied experimentally. Test specimens made from bars of several different diameters d and lengths L were crushed axially between parallel plates both statically and by the use of a drop hammer. It was found that the energy absorbed per unit mass of energy absorber decreased with the increase in aspect… CONTINUE READING
