Cost Effective & Innovative Impact Attenuator for Formula SAE Car with Drop Test Analysis
      Arpit Singhal, Vignesh S. Subramanium
Abstract: The impact attenuator [7] is an energy absorbing device installed forward of the front bulkhead of the car with the function to absorb energy and to protect the driver from a sudden change of momentum experienced during an event of a collision. It achieves that by deforming plastically and absorbing a part of the total energy involved during a collision. Aim of this paper is to provide innovation towards the usual and conventional Honeycomb Structured Attenuators for FSAE cars, and testing its effectiveness with drop weight test analysis providing average deceleration impact of vehicle to be less than 20g, which is required according to FSAE design rules.
