In this study, an innovative thin-walled energy absorbing structure was manufactured following by biomimicry rules and produced from AISI 304L stainless steel sheet material by deep drawing method. Manufacturing process was modelled in two stages to produce the numerical specimen containing residual stress/strain and thickness distribution using commercial software LS-DYNA. The balanus being a sea creature, consisting of an inner core structure and an outer shell structure, is the inspiration of this study. The balanus was compared to the other conventional geometries in terms of the energy absorption capacity and determined as highly advantageous configuration. Quasi-static crushing and drop weight experiments were conducted and modelled numerically. The observations indicated that the carried load by the balanus is greater than the arithmetic total of the carried load by the inner core and the outer shell separately due to the interaction effect. Besides, energy absorbing performance of the balanus improved under dynamic loading since the outer shell confines the inner core during the deformation and developed the energy absorption performance of it while the energy absorbing capacity of the other two decreased. After the end of the experimental studies, the energy absorption partitions between the components of the balanus were studied numerically and it was observed that the energy absorbing capacity of the balanus increases with increasing deformation velocity due to the strain rate sensitivity effect of the material and the differences of energy partition ratio between the two components decreases.
