Quasi-static impact of foldcore sandwich panels

Abstract:

This thesis considered the design of new and improved foldcore sandwich panels suitable for high-performance energy absorption applications. This was achieved by utilising origami geometry design techniques to alter foldcore structures such that they possessed different mechanical behaviours and failure modes. The major findings of this thesis were in three areas as follows.

First, a modified planar foldcore geometry was developed by introducing sub-folds into a standard foldcore ...
