Unique energy absorbing container

27-Jun-2017

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Computer-Aided Engineering Centre of Excellence (CompMechLab)

This is the unique energy absorbing container designed by SPbPU scientists.

The protective container, with world's best energy absorption characteristics, was designed and manufactured at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Computer-Aided Engineering Centre of Excellence (CompMechLab®) in collaboration with LLC 'Special and Medical Equipment'.

A technology was developed to ensures the safety and efficiency of fragile equipment (for example, high-precision devices weighing up to 8 kg) when dropped from 125 meters height on hard surface (concrete, rocky base).

The container was developed in impressively short terms. From establishing the main objectives to prototype production and carrying out of full-scale tests (dropping from the helicopter on the concrete surface) were conducted within only 38 days.

"Full-scale tests confirmed the complete safety and efficiency of the protected equipment," says Prof., Dr. Alexey Borovkov, Vice-Rector for Advanced Projects of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU).

He also added that the project was implemented within the Digital Factory (TechNet, National Technology Initiative) on the basis of Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies SPbPU. It demonstrates the results of Simulation & Optimization-Driven Design and Manufacturing paradigm, which allows to create globally competitive customized products of new generation in the shortest terms.
