Drawing behaviour of metal-composite sandwich structures

Gresham, Joel; Cantwell, Wesley J; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Compston, Paul; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


The drawing behaviour of metal-composite sandwich structures is investigated as a function of the constituent material properties and the process variables of blank preheat temperature and blank-holder force. Materials include three grades of aluminium alloy as the skin layer material and two types of reinforced polypropylene composite as the core layer material. Blank-holder force has a significant effect on the failure mode of the metal-composite system with lower forces resulting in...[Show more]
