Static and Fatigue Analysis of a Hybrid Joint Part for the Tilting Car Body
Fatigue fracture behavior of a hybrid joint part for the tilting car body was evaluated in comparison to the case of static fracture. The specimens of hybrid joint part applied in the real tilting car body were fabricated for the bending test. Characteristic fracture behaviors of hybrid joint part specimens under cyclic loads were obviously different from the case under static loads. Static bending load caused the shear deformation and fracture in the honeycomb core region, while cyclic bending load did the delamination along the interface between composite skin and honeycomb core layers as well as the fracture of welded joint part. Experimental results obtained by static and fatigue tests were reflected in modifications of design parameters of the hybrid joint structure in the real tilting car body.
