    MIL-810 drop test, values in Simulation for plywood impact surface

    Bert Bourgeois



      First time poster.....


      1. I want to use drop test to simulate a 'transit drop test' according to the MIL-810 std.


      The std state dropping from 1220mm onto 2inches of plywood (plywood which sits on a concrete floor)


      But I am having trouble sourcing what the help refers to as 'normal stiffness' and 'tangential stiffness' for plywood.


      Are those K values? or known as something else?


      2. should I use a value for the Contact Damping at all?


      Thanks a lot in advance.
