Numerical Simulation of Perforated Hollow Sphere Structures (PHSS) to Investigate Mechanical Properties
This paper investigates the uniaxial mechanical properties of a new type of hollow sphere structures. For this new type, the sphere shell is perforated by several holes in order to open the inner sphere volume and surface. The mechanical properties, i.e. elastic properties and initial yield stress, of perforated hollow sphere structures in a primitive cubic arrangement are numerically evaluated for different hole diameters and different sphere wall thicknesses.
