Effect of heat treatment on the blast loading response of combined geometry shell core sandwich structures
The effect of heat treatment on the dynamic crushing and energy absorption behavior of combined geometry shell cores (hemisphere and cylinder) of sandwich structures were investigated both experimentally and numerically. ...
Numerical approach to design process of armored vehicles
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2010)
Today, it is imperative that armored vehicles need advanced protection kits against anti-symmetric threats more than before. The primary goal of this study was to assess benefits of explicit hydrocodes for mine protection ...
Stress wave propagation effects in two- and three-layered composite materials
(SAGE Publications, 2004)
Multilayer materials consisting of ceramic and glass/epoxy composites have been subjected to high strain rate compression testing using the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar. The samples were extensively strain gaged so that ...
The effect of the interlayer on the ballistic performance of ceramic/composite armors: Experimental and numerical study
The effect of rubber, Teflon and aluminum foam interlayer material on the ballistic performance of composite armor was investigated both experimentally and numerically. Although, rubber interlayer did not cause any significant ...
Experimental and numerical studies on the quasi-static and dynamic crushing responses of multi-layer trapezoidal aluminum corrugated sandwiches
The axial crushing responses of bonded and brazed multi-layer 1050 H14 trapezoid alaluminum corru- gated core (fin) sandwich structures, with and without aluminum interlayer sheets in 0°/0° and 0°/90° core orientations, ...
Calcined and natural frustules filled epoxy matrices: The effect of volume fraction on the tensile and compression behavior
The effects of calcined diatom (CD) and natural diatom (ND) frustules filling (0–12 vol.%) on the quasistatic tensile and quasi-static and high strain rate compression behavior of an epoxy matrix were investigated ...
