Finite Element Analysis and Experimental Evolution of Honeycomb Panel
Komal A. Jangavali | D. P. Kamble
Abstract: The honeycomb sandwich construction is one of the most valued structural engineering innovations developed by the composite industries. Honeycomb sandwich panels provides high ratio of strength to weight, high ratios of stiffness-to-weight, excellent crush strength and stiffness, high fatigue resistance and excellent moisture resistance. Sandwich panels are widely used in different structural applications such as aircraft floor panels, control surfaces, civil engineering structures and many more. The main use of these panels is to reduce weight and material usage. These panels undergo various static and dynamic loading along with thermal environment. It is desired to study the mechanical behavior and energy absorption capacity of sandwich panels so as to help designer in the selection of sandwich panel as per application. Honeycomb sandwich structures are increasing being used to replace traditional materials inhighly load applications. In this paper three point bending and impact test is performed on the honeycomb panel. Honeycomb panel is made up of aluminium core with FRP face sheet. Also Finite element analysis of honeycomb panel is done in the ANSYS.
