Analysis of the anisotropic properties of honeycomb sandwich plates

  • V. E. Kryutchenko


A mathematical model has been described and an approach proposed to the diagnostics of the anisotropic properties of the relative elasticity constants of three-layer (sandwich) plates with a honeycomb filler. Compact analytical relationships between the anisotropy coefficients and the geometrical dimensions of the cells have been obtained. A practical approach has been proposed for the selection of rational parameters of the honeycomb structure, at which its anisotropic properties would be in the chosen region of the functional space. The conditions have been formulated at which the constructive anisotropy, inherent to honeycomb structures, degenerates to isotropy for some relative elastic constants.
