Cushioning curves for different plastic foams were determined using drop and shock tests. It was found that at intermediate static stresses the two methods give comparable results. At low and very high static stresses however, different results were obtained. An explanation was given why the shock test is more appropriate and reliable at low and the drop test at very high static stresses.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
