Characterisation of the flexural behaviour of Aluminium Foam Sandwich Structures
Aluminium foam has a range of properties that are desirable in many applications. These properties include good stiffness and strength to weight ratios, impact energy absorption, sound damping, thermal insulation and non combustibility. Many of these characteristics are particularly attractive for core materials within sandwich structures. The combination of aluminium foam cores with thermoplastic composite skins is easily manufactured and has good potential as a multifunctional sandwich...[Show more]
