As the mechanical properties of honeycomb structures are influenced by several parameters, detailed analysis is necessary before their potential application in transportation industry components. Previous Finite Element Model (FEM)-based numerical analysis demonstrated that variation in cell geometry affects the achievable strength level and, thus, the energy absorption capability. According to this FEM study, the Kagome geometry – an ordered sequence of hexagons and triangles – exhibits properties that are particularly promising when compared to the square-celled structures investigated to date. When the load is applied parallel to the channel axis (the out-of-plane direction), the increment of strength is comparatively low, whereas in the in-plane direction (loading orthogonal to the channel axis), the dissipated specific energy can reach almost double that of the square-celled structure. In this study, the results of static and dynamic compression tests – performed in the out-of-plane and in-plane modes – are presented to examine the influence of strain rate and loading direction on the characteristic deformation stages of squarecelled and Kagome structures. Particular attention is paid to deformation induced martensite formation in the cell wall material, indicating the TRansformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP) effect as a function of applied cell geometry, strain rate and loading direction.
