Mechanical and energy absorption behaviors of metal/polymer layered sandwich structures
(SAGE Publications, 2011-09)
This article considers the sandwich structures with aluminium (Al) foams of various thicknesses in conjunction with skins composed of fibre-metal laminates (FML). The FMLs with Al sheet and glass fiber reinforced polypropylene ...
The optimisation of the energy absorption of partially Al foam-filled commercial 1050H14 and 6061T4 Al crash boxes
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-02)
Partially Alulight and Hydro Al closed-cell foam-filled commercial 1050H14 Al and 6061T4 Al crash boxes were optimised using the response surface methodology in order to maximise specific energy absorption (SEA). The ...
