An impact test of the crash of a hen egg and a computational simulation using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) have been implemented to determine the different types of failure occurred correlating with the values and the stress maps obtained in the computational simulation. The experimental procedure consists in releasing seventeen eggs from a height which determines the incident kinetic energy and hence the incident velocity while a Transitory Analysis was developed to simulate the dynamical impact of the eggshell on the floor. With the results obtained, a newly classification for the types of failure the eggshells was proposed.
