NUMERICAL SIMULATIONS OF SANDWICH STRUCTURES UNDER LATERAL COMPRESSION

The current paper analyzes the effect of the cross-section on the energy absorption capabilities of sandwich structures under compressive loads. For this purpose, several cross-section including triangular, square, hexagonal and circular shapes were analyzed using Abaqus software. According to the results the hexagonal shape is the most favorable cross-section to increase the crashworthiness performance of the structures up to 700% of CFE with respect to the square arrangement.
