Default Can water bend a heat shield?

If a Honda is driven fast enough through a deep puddle, can the force
of the water hitting the car bend one of the heat shields on the
exhaust pipe?

No. But it can shock shields loose that are hanging on by a thread of
rust...

The heat shield is a thin metal sheet over the exhaust pipe, right? I
discovered mine was bent close to the pipe which was causing a very
loud annoying rattle. The only possible explanation I could think of
was a huge puddle I plowed through the other day.

Thanks for the input though!

Then it wasn't a puddle. You hit something harder at some point.

A small heat shield is not a ship hull. The stresses are not the same.

I doubt that you could run through a puddle at a high enough rate that could
accelerate the water to an amplitude that would bend the shield without
hydroplaning.......water is used to cut steel plates (among other things),
but at up to 60kpsi.

Rapid and unevenly cooling hot metal can cause it to warp.
