|Abstract:||Cardboard honeycomb energy dissipating material (EDM) is used extensively forprotection of cargo that is air dropped. Whilst air dropped containers are deployed withparachutes, a signiﬁcant amount of energy still requires dissipating on impact with the ground.The speciﬁcation of cardboard EDM in dynamic applications has tended to be ad-hoc withno thorough understanding of the energy absorbing characteristics of the material. This paperseeks to address this gap in knowledge.|
