Abstract The European aircraft industry has strong interest in novel structural concepts for future aircraft fuselage with lower fabrication costs and high performance. A critical safety issue for the design of aircraft structure is vulnerability and damage tolerance due to foreign object impact. This paper focuses on the improvement of modelling techniques for foldcore sandwich structures with composite skins under low velocity impact. A new modelling approach for the foldcore cell wall… CONTINUE READING
