This piece was made with the help of Karl Biewald of AXN-RXN.  We designed this piece to simulate a 30 mph head on collision. The piece took guidance from four major sources. A small scale model I made, collision studies, industrial car compactor and FEA analysis of a Solidworks computer model.  From the small model showed us a procedure that produced a crash the looked good.  From the collision studies we found the force numbers that we would have to obtain. From the industrial compactor we found economical means to create the forces needed and the FEA allowed us to design a structure that was minimal yet effective.
