Title: Computationally Efficient Finite Element Analysis Method Incorporating Virtual Equivalent Projected Model For Metallic Sandwich Panels With Pyramidal Truss Cores

Abstract

Metallic sandwich panels composed of two face sheets and cores with low relative density have lightweight characteristics and various static and dynamic load bearing functions. To predict the forming characteristics, performance, and formability of these structured materials, full 3D modeling and analysis involving tremendous computational time and memory are required. Some constitutive continuum models including homogenization approaches to solve these problems have limitations with respect to the prediction of local buckling of face sheets and inner structures. In this work, a computationally efficient FE-analysis method incorporating a virtual equivalent projected model that enables the simulation of local buckling modes is newly introduced for analysis of metallic sandwich panels. Two-dimensional models using the projected shapes of 3D structures have the same equivalent elastic-plastic properties with original geometries that have anisotropic stiffness, yield strength, and hardening function. The sizes and isotropic properties of the virtual equivalent projected model have been estimated analytically with the same equivalent properties and face buckling strength of the full model. The 3-point bending processes with quasi-two-dimensional loads and boundary conditions are simulated to establish the validity of the proposed method. The deformed shapes and load-displacement curves of the virtual equivalent projected model are found to be almostmore » the same as those of a full three-dimensional FE-analysis while reducing computational time drastically.« less
