Explore this lightweight structure used for sandwich construction.
- [Instructor] Core is a sandwich construction.…Sandwich construction is a structural panel concept that…consists in its simple form of two relatively thin…parallel face sheets to and separated by…a relatively thick lightweight core.…The core supports the face sheets against buckling…and resists autoplane shear loads.…The core must have high shear strength…and compression stiffness.…Skin laminates may be pre-cured…and subsequently bonded to Core,…co-cured to Core in one operation.…
Most honeycomb structures used in aircraft construction…have aluminum, fiberglass, kevlar,…or carbon fiber face sheets.…Carbon fiber face sheets cannot be used…with aluminum honeycomb core material,…because it causes the aluminum to corrode.…Titanium and steel are used for specialty applications…and high-temperature constructions.…Now the different types of Core:…we have honeycomb Core cells…for aerospace applications are usually hexagonal,…sort of like a beehive.…The cells are made by bonding stacked sheets of…at special locations.…
The stacked sheets are expanded to form hexagons.…
