Characterization of the Flexural Behavior of SMP Sandwich Beam

Abstract:

Article Preview

Shape memory polymers (SMPs) can have a large frozen strain but providing much lower recovery stresses. To overcome such disadvantage, sandwich structures consisted of a SMP core and two thin metallic skins was considered. Due to much compliance of the SMP core, SMP sandwich beam is buckled at a lower packaging strain. Buckling is the fundamental character of SMP sandwich beam under bending. The critical buckling parameters about two types of SMP sandwich beams were theoretically derived.
