Thin flat plate with linear spring as mechanical stop. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A mechanical device has been developed which dissipates mechanical energy simply and reliably, without generating debris. The device basically consists of a stack of thin flat metal layers, forming a flexible plate, and a mechanical spring to buffer the impact of the moving object. Equations have been developed which allow the design of such devices for particular applications.
