Quasi-Static Failure Analysis of Honeycomb Sandwich Beam with Composite Facesheets
Sandwich construction consists of two thin composite or metal facesheets separated by a core material. Despite extensive researches on the sandwich constructions, their mechanical properties and failure behaviours are still not fully understand. The objective of the paper is to use a experimental and theoretical predicting failure mode for sandwich beam consisting of GFRP facesheets and Nomex honeycomb core. Two kinds of composite sandwich beams are observed in quasi-static three-point bending and indentation test.
