Abstract:

The aim of the present paper is to study the bending behaviour of honeycomb sandwich structure made of aluminium alloy cores, through the four point bending tests. Effects of the variation in honeycomb core height and honeycomb sandwich panel skin are investigated. The honeycomb panels demonstrate an initial linear elastic behaviour which is followed by nonlinear elastic-plastic behaviour. Also the flexural behaviour of honeycomb sandwich structure was analyzed by finite element analysis. The honeycomb sandwich panel failure modes are reported and discussed.
