Engineered to innovate : CompositesWorld Although honeycomb has been the core of choice for composite aircraft structures, condensation and accumulation of moisture within its open cell structure has been a perennial problem in these particularly weight-sensitive applications. Aircraft . The AM-2 system is currently comprised of 2-ft by 12-ft (0.61m by 3.66m) aluminum panels, which are 1.5-inch/38-mm thick aluminum extrusions with extruded end connectors along all four edges to provide a locking mechanism.

Loading, Degradation and Repair of F-111 Bonded Honeycomb Bonded Honeycomb sandwich panels -. Preliminary Study. Executive Summary. Many RAAF aircraft contain bonded sandwich panels that are made up of thin-face sheets, metallic or composite, bonded to aluminium honeycomb core. A serious problem encountered by such panels is the susceptibility of the panels to damage and degradation, particularly long-term degradation by moisture in the adhesive bonds used to consolidate the sandwich panels. A number of recent in-flight
Sandwich Structures Aerospace Engineering Blog 28 Jun 2013 sandwich panels are an important composite structure in aerospace applications as well as in high performance automobiles, boats and wind turbines. Typically a sandwich panel is comprised of a low stiffness, low density inner core enclosed by two stiff outer skins, as shown in Figure 1, where the whole assembly is held together by some sort of structural adhesive (Figure 2). The outer skins are typically made from stiff carbon fibre or aerospace grade aluminium. Fig
Chapter 7: Advanced Composite Material construction of aerospace structures. Aircraft parts made from composite materials, such as fairings, spoilers, and flight controls, were developed during the 1960s for their weight savings over aluminum parts. New generation large aircraft Fairings. • Flight control surfaces. • Landing gear doors. • Leading and trailing edge panels on the wing and stabilizer. • Interior components. • Floor beams and floor boards. • Vertical and horizontal stabilizer primary structure on large aircraft.
Comparative Analysis of Al-Li Alloy and Aluminum Honeycomb 9 Sep 2015 It has been found that addition of 1% of lithium to aluminum reduces alloy density up to 3% and increases modulus by 6% . Besides, a basic trend towards increased utilization and integration of laminated anisotropic composites into the construction of aeronautical and aerospace vehicles has manifested in the last decade . And sandwich-type honeycomb panel  which is a typical laminated anisotropic composite is an important alternative aeronautical material.
Experimental strength of composite sandwich panels with cores Composite sandwich panels with face sheets made of carbon/epoxy fabric and carbon/epoxy uni-directional prepreg were tested. The sandwich cores made by aluminum honeycomb and foam were cured with the face sheet at 180 °C. The aluminum core sandwich failed at the 40% failure strain of the face skin in the compression test. On the other hand, the foam core sandwich failed at the 100% failure strain of the face skin in the compression test. In the case of the aluminium core
Experimental strength of composite sandwich panels with cores 23 Dec 2013 Because the sandwich panel with aluminium cores had higher critical stress for the face wrinkling than the sandwich panel with foam cores due to higher compression modulus of aluminium cores than foam cores. Keywords: sandwich Composite sandwich structures are used in aerospace structures and the strength of composite sandwich structures with aluminum honeycomb cores or foam cores is important for the design of aerospace structures. The selection of a
Preparation of Aluminum Foam Sandwich Reinforced by Steel Sheets aluminum foam sandwich (AFS) possesses excellent performance of light weight, high specific strength and stiffness, impact resistance, etc., which can be widely used in rail transit vehicles, aviation and aerospace industry and military field. that the steel sheets coated by Zn-55 wt.%Al alloy can be combined with the foamable precursor by liquid phase diffusion welding. The AFS with diffusion bonding interface can be also obtained by baking in furnace. Previous article in issue
Advanced materials for aircraft interiors : CompositesWorld While the new 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380 have attracted kudos for groundbreaking structural composite airframe designs, composites have long been standard issue for virtually every visible part of a commercial aircraft's cabin, primarily because of the material's These materials are found most often in floor and ceiling panels, cargo liners, overhead stowage bins, panels, window surrounds, lavatory modules, galleys, food and drink trolleys and bulkheads/class dividers.

Response Analysis of Blast Impact Loading of Metal-foam Sandwich The study of the structural blastworthiness is aimed to design efficient structures to protect the personnel inside the armor vehicle. Designing blastworthy structures requires not only high strength material, but also the capability of the structure to absorb the blast impact energy. The use of the sandwich construction with martensitic steel as the armor material and metallic foam as the energy absorber is promising to obtain the lightweight blast impact resistant structure.
