This paper presents the non-linear simulation of the impact on a structure with different energy absorption systems using finite element models. A comparison of the damage caused to the structure in case of impact without implementing energy absorption system, and implementing energy absorption systems based on bistable structures, polystyrene foam and aluminium foam are shown here in. The results demonstrate the advantages of using energy absorption systems on structures under impact loads.
