A Study on Structual Strength in Body Structure of Composite Material
This study introduces the structural analysis and the testing results of the composite structure which is applied to tilting train in Korea. The composite structure is made of aluminum honeycomb structure materials like a sandwich. The static load test was performed to evaluate the structural characteristic and stability of the composite structure. Considering the vertical, compressive, torsional load and 3-point supporting type as a testing terms, the structural stability of a carbody was evaluated. Load test are based on "Performance Test Standard for Electrical Multiple Unit" with the reference code JIS E 7105. The test results have been very safety and stable for design load conditions.
