Foldcores made of thermoplastic materials: Experimental study and finite element analysis

Abstract:

Foldcore sandwich structures have aroused considerable research interests in recent years as a promising alternative to honeycomb sandwich structures. While metallic, aramid and CFRP foldcores have been extensively studied, foldcores made of thermoplastic materials have not been well investigated. This paper presents an experimental and numerical study on thermoplastic foldcores. A manufacturing process involving folding with dies and shape-setting by heat-tre...
