Abstract: Illustrated with two photographs, two graphs and one table this article describes a study in energy absorption, a critical mechanism in the design of many articles like the automobile and personal protection devices such as crash helmets for motorcyclists and bullet proof clothing. Non-reversible deformation is a requirement of all materials used for energy absorption. There is a vast range of choice in the materials and structural forms for this purpose. This study concentrates on the properties of textile structures, and the authors describe the scope of their research that covered both theoretical predictions allied to experimental results. The table shows that better energy absorption coupled with better ventilation and lower weight is possible in a new bicycle helmet made from textile composites, referred to as TC in the article.
