Abstract

The paper deals with simulation of damage spread in special structures with “waiting links.” These structures are stable against dynamic impacts due to their morphology. They are able to transform “partial damage” through a large region, thereby dissipating the energy of the impact. We simulate various structures with waiting links and compare their characteristics with conventional designs.
