The Dynamic Mechanical Properties of CBF Composite Plate and its Sandwich Structure with Aluminum Foam Core
The continuous basalt fiber (CBF) as inorganic fiber obtained from the basalt melt. It has high elastic modulus, low bulk density, low thermal conductivity, low moisture absorption rate and excellent alkali resistance, etc. In this paper, the split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) technique is used for testing the CBF composite plate and its sandwich structure with aluminum foam core dynamic mechanical properties, and then to study the dynamic properties of CBF composite plate and its aluminum foam sandwich structure under different high strain rate. From the test results we can see that the CBF-foam aluminum sandwich structure has superior energy absorption properties, and also from the experiment results we can obtain that the sandwich structure dynamic stress-strain curves has a typically "three-phase" characteristics and strain rate effect.
