dc.description.abstract Past collisions determine the current mechanical properties of asteroids, and hence their response to future collisions. To understand the evolution of their diverse shapes, structures and spin states, we model hypervelocity impacts into small asteroids using a modern 3D smooth-particle hydrocode (SPH3D) that takes material strength and fracture into account. en_US
