Abstract (en)

The invention relates to an energy dissipating device suitable to be used as part of a connection device that connects a first car of a multi-car vehicle with a second car of the multi-car vehicle, comprising a plug that has a longitudinal axis and a mandrel that has an opening, whereby the plug is arranged to be moved at least partially through the opening, if a force pointing in the longitudinal axis is applied to the plug, and whereby at least a part of the plug and/or at least a part of the mandrel is deformed, when the plug is at least partially moved through the opening, whereby the outer surface of the plug has at least one protruding rib that extends in the direction of or parallel to the direction of the longitudinal axis, said rib being at least partially deformed, when the plug is at least partially moved through the opening and/or the surface of the mandrel that surrounds the opening has at least one protruding rib that extends in the direction of or parallel to the direction of the longitudinal axis, said rib being at least partially deformed, when the plug is at least partially moved through the opening.
