Are you asking the mechanical engineers on the list for a SWAG
(scientific wild-assed guess) for an unknown structure, or do you have
at least bare minimum specifications of size and strength of a known
structure to work from?
I'm not a mechanical engineer, but even I can tell that the question
itself needs a lot more work than was put into it.
A two pound block of steel with no useful electronics on board would
likely "survive" a lot better than a fragile radio device or robot,
for example. But the block of steel won't DO anything useful.
