2009 (English)In: Major Accomplishments in Composite Materials and Sandwich Structures: An Anthology of ONR Sponsored Research / [ed] I.M. Daniel, E.E. Gdoutos, Y.D.S. Rajapakse, Springer Publishing Company, 2009, 279-303 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This paper is a review of activities concerning various damage tolerance modelling and testing aspects of sandwich panels for typical Naval applications. It starts with a review of testing methods for primarily core materials and how to extract properties and data required for damage tolerance assessment. Next some typical damage types are defined and how they are modelled with the aim of predicting their effect on load bearing capacity. The paper then describes in brief how such models can used in the context of providing a systematic damage assessment scheme for composite sandwich ship structures.
