Flexural behaviour of sandwich panels
Various sandwich panels
Sandwich panels consist of core and skins. The project aims to investigate flexural behaviour of fibre composite sandwich panels with different cores and skin fibre orientations. The scope is limited to preparing sandwiches, conducting one and two-way spanning flexural tests and an analysis. It is important to investigate this behaviour because different fibre orientations show anisotropic behaviour in different directions with different aspect ratio of sandwiches. The outcome will provide a better understanding of the behaviour for different directional applications to develop a suitable design methodology.
