The Menasco Energy Absorbing Unit and Its Application To Bumper Systems 710536

A compressible solid shock isolator is a combination spring and damper which makes use of a silicone elastomer media to achieve these two functions. It is a candidate for use in energy absorbing bumper systems because of its favorable volume, weight, automatic reset capability, functional efficiency, reliability, and cost. E/A bumper systems must be designed to accommodate a wide variety of loading conditions. System qualification requires the use of both pendulum and barrier type testing.
