A Study on the Mechanical Properties of the Honeycomb Sandwich Composites made by VARTM
To prove the suitability the honeycomb composites structure with VARTM, the mechanical properties of the skin materials and honeycomb composites structure were evaluated with the static strength tests. The mechanical properties of honeycomb composites structure made by VARTM were satisfied with the real using conditions instead of the composites structure made by autoclave process. Accordingly, the honeycomb sandwich composites made by VARTM is available for manufacturing various composites parts. VARTM was very effective method to manufacture the honeycomb sandwich composites. It was possible that the manufacturing process was changed from autoclave process to VARTM to solve the problems on the autoclave process.
