Research on the Anti-Penetration Performance of Aluminum Foam Sandwich Plate
This paper investigated the anti-penetration performance of different sandwich structures plate using numerical simulation method. Finite elements models of the bullet and sandwich plate were established. The penetration performance of sandwich plate by bullet was simulated by software of LS-DYNA and dynamic response of the bullet during the penetration process was got. The results show that the anti-penetration performance is different because of the different cores in the plate. Besides, the density of the aluminum foam core has a direct effect on the performance. This paper could provide some reference for the designing of sandwich structures.
