EQUIVALENT SECTION PROPERTIES FOR SANDWICH PLATES


Sandwich plates

Sandwich Plates

  • Sandwich plates are made of a top and bottom facesheet with a core between, which are all glued together.

  • This creates a plate that has a high bending stiffness for it’s weight.

  • The facesheets are usually thin plates of an isotropic material.

  • The core separates the facesheets and transmits shear loads between the facesheets but otherwise is usually considered to be structurally insignificant.

PSHELL bulk data entry

  • The PSHELL’s T, 12I/T**3, and TS/T fields are adjusted to account for the equivalent section.

Nastran Definitions of Sandwich Plates - PSHELL

  • MID1, MID2, and MID3 all point to the same MAT1 isotropic material.

  • The T field on the PSHELL is set to the sum of the facesheet thicknesses (2*Tf).

  • The 12/T**3 field on the PSHELL is set to the ratio of the actual sandwich moment of inertia to the moment of inertia calculated from T on the PSHELL. In this case if the core moment of inertia is ignored:

  • An approximation for the effective shear thickness ,Ts/T, is TS/T=(5/6)*(Tc+2Tf)/T
