Abstract
Abstract The manufacturing of shaped sandwich components is a task with technical challenge. In this paper the mechanical feasibility to produce a doubly curved panel from an initially flat sandwich plate was investigated. Experimental results of multi-point forming (MPF) and finite element analyses reveal that the formability of sandwich panel with egg-box-like (EBL) cores in plastic forming process is mainly dominated by the failure modes of face sheet plastic wrinkling, face sheet plastic dimpling and core cell fracture. Analytical models for predicting the face sheet buckling were developed, and limit bending radius for wrinkling and the critical stress for dimpling were determined as the functions of the geometric parameters and material properties of sandwich plate. The stress-based fracture limit curve and associated theoretical formulations to predict the core cell fracture were presented. The developed analytical models have been validated experimentally and using finite element simulations. Multi-point forming experiments were carried out and the feasibility of using plastic forming technique to form EBL-cored sandwich panels was demonstrated finally.

Abstract The effects of temperature on the mechanical properties and failure mechanisms of composite sandwich panel with Y-shaped cores under out-of-plane compression have been studied in this paper. The carbon fiber composite sandwich panel with Y-shaped cores was manufactured by a hot-press method using unidirectional carbon/epoxy prepregs. The out-of-plane compression tests of composite sandwich panels were conducted at temperatures ranging from 20 °C to 200 °C. Then the stress-strain curves,...

Abstract A novel sandwich core topology – corrugated channels (periodic fluid-through wavy passages) – was proposed for simultaneous load-bearing and active cooling applications. Relative to a sandwich panel with parallel plate channels, the sandwich with corrugated channel core exhibits not only significantly enhanced convective heat transfer rate but also superior mechanical performance. To explore the underlying deformation and failure mechanisms, corrugated-channel-cored sandwich panels (3CS...

Abstract Structural sandwich panels with graphitic-foam cores are considered for applications where extraordinary thermal conductivity of the core material may offer unique benefits for challenging thermoelastic structures. Sandwich panels constructed with carbon-fiber facesheets and graphitic-foam cores could provide a viable solution for “optical benches,” which require high stiffness and thermal stability; such panels should exhibit lower susceptibility to thermal distortion than sandwich pan...

Abstract In part 1, a fundamental study on mechanical properties and deep drawing of a steel/polymer/steel sandwich (SMs) combination was accomplished investigating one type of reinforced SMs (R-SMs). In this part, the effect of reinforcements (REs) with different geometries, sizes, materials and locations on stretching and deep drawability is introduced. Additionally, the influence of reinforcing SMs with different mechanical properties and skin/core thicknesses is considered. Therefore, a deep...

Hybrid composite pyramidal truss sandwich panels combined with multiple damping configurations are fabricated in this work. Modal and quasi-static compressive tests are carried out to investigate the damping and stiffness efficiency of the candidate structures. Experimental results show that such structures combined with damping materials would significantly improve the damping loss efficiency but decrease simultaneously the stiffness efficiency in varying degrees compared with the bare hybrid s...

This paper studies the plastic forming of sandwich panels and proposes a universal elastoplastic equivalent method suitable for sandwich panels. To verify the generality of the equivalent method, according to the different core structures, the cores of bi-directional trapezoidal sandwich (BTS) panels and aluminum foam sandwich (AFS) panels are equated to orthotropic and isotropic (special orthotropic) single-layer panels respectively. Through the finite element (FE) numerical simulation of the m...

For affordable high-volume manufacture of sandwich panels with complex curvature and varying thickness, fabric skins and a core structure are simultaneously press-formed using a set of matched tools. A finite-element-based process simulation was developed, which takes into account shearing of the reinforcement skins, multi-axial deformation of the core structure, and friction at the interfaces. Meso-scale sandwich models, based on measured properties of the honeycomb cell walls, indicate that pa...
