Honeycomb Safety Structure: Design, Analysis and Applications in Safe Road Transport

Pankaj Prakash Ande [5]

Abstract: In this research study, honeycomb safety structures was designed, analysed for safe road transport application point of view and the use of materials in these structures were addressed. Honeycomb structure was constructed using honeycomb core, adhesive and aluminium panels and Compression test was performed on it. CAD model of the honeycomb structure was designed using PTC Creo parametric design software. Following which, ANSYS Workbench - Static Structural simulations are carried out on different material grades of aluminium on honeycomb structures. These compression test and simulations are carried out with the aim to compare and understand the impact load capacity on these materials of honeycomb structures. Apart from that, the energy absorption ability of honeycomb structure with the normal block structure has been analysed using ANSYS Workbench- Explicit Dynamics.
