Finite Element Analysis of X-Cor Sandwich’s Compressive Modulus
By contrasting the two finite models, a practical finite element computational model of X-cor sandwich’s compressive modulus was proposed. Through numerical analysis the X-cor sandwich’s stress field and compressive modulus were achieved and the effects of changing Z-pin’s radius, density, angle and volume fraction to the X-cor sandwich’s compressive modulus were analyzed. The numerical analysis results indicate that as the Z-pin’s angle increases the X-cor sandwich’s compressive modulus decreases, as the Z-pin’s radius, density and volume fraction increase the X-cor sandwich’s compressive modulus increases. Through the computation of finite model the influencing trends of X-cor sandwich’s parameters are achieved and the rationality of the proposed finite model is verified.
