Because of high stiffness and strength to weight ratios, composite sandwiches are being used increasingly, especially in aerospace applications. The main drawback of sandwich components is their relatively low resistance to impact damage and the extent to which their strength is reduced under compressive loading after impact. As part of a wider study aimed at increasing the impact resistance of sandwich panels, a continuum damage model is proposed. The model developed describes the compressive… CONTINUE READING
