A beautiful design. A tomato.

There is a lot one can imagine that can happen with a tomato. We can eat it using it to prepare a delicious meal or we can throw it as what happens in Spain on a special event “the tomatina” festival. Here the tomato is munition and we all are the targets. Basically a tomato splat party but on a huge village scale. Now more seriously dropping a tomato will yield an impact test, more known as a drop test. But how could I model this explicit behavior? Looks like an interesting subject, a drop test on a open source application. No LS-Dyna.

Also the drop test will destroy the tomato a a deformable body. These look like interesting subjects for future discussion.
