Sandwich For The Body Structure 845122

An investigation was conducted into the feasibility of sandwich utilisation for car bodies. In order to establish the basis of flexibility to sandwich material compositions, a classification of the body structure into primary and secondary functions is described and analytical methods are discussed. Various sandwich test specimens have been investigated for structural design, manufacturing feasibility, surface treatment possibilities and some engineering tests. The influence to the overall body strength and crash energy absorption capability is discussed.
