The calculations for sandwichpanel must be considered the additional loads like temperature differences between external and internal metal faces or creep of the core . The high load bearing capacity of sandwich panels is the effect of a rigid connection between the material of core and the skin layers. The two faces and core layers have two different functions. The faces of the sandwichpanel received the bending moment and the shear forces are distributed to the core layer. Optimization of load bearing on the sandwichpanel has been made through two main assumptions. The first assumption is all the mechanical properties of sandwichpanel shall be adjusted in such way that the biggest potential span can be achieved. The second theory is all the mechanical properties shall be mostly utilized. The optimizations of a sandwichpanel become a complicated process when the combination of these two assumptions with some statical systems and various load cases that might possibly occurred. Based on the sandwichpanel theory, the background of the optimization calculations is influenced by the calculation method for sandwich panels .

A. Gopichand  In this paper a stainless steel is chosen a face sheet and copper as a core material. The defining characteristic of these Honeycombs is a very high porosity; typically 75-95% of the volume consists of void spaces. Static three-point bending tests were carried out in order to investigate load and deflection variations. The theoretical load and defections in copper honey comb sandwichpanel values is adapted and compared with experimental and simulation results. Based on the results it is found that the gradient of deflection curve is high for lower core height and stress is low for higher value of core height. These results can be used as input when designing sandwich panels.
ABSTRACT Malaysia needs to produce affordable quality homes to house the country’s growing population and meets demands arising from migration of people to economic centres in the urban areas. The country is therefore looking for suitable alternatives to conventional building systems to provide affordable quality housing to its citizens. As a part of this effort, the civil engineering department at the Universiti Putra Malaysia, has undertaken extensive experimental and theoretical investigations to develop a load bearing system using Precast Concrete SandwichPanel (PCSP). A description of these investigations is presented in this paper. The paper also concludes with some major results and a discussion of further research is provided.
results are compared. The theories of energy method and impedance method in solving the absorption coefficient are also compared with the numerical results. The dissipated energy power that is totally absorbed by the absorber sandwichpanel can be obtained by simulation. In the absorption coefficient plot shown in Figure 5.16 (a), only one peak appears around 700 Hz which is neither the resonance frequency of HR1 (680 Hz) not HR2 (750Hz) in the unit cell. A new hybrid resonant mode comes out, which is clearly found in both resistance and reactance plots in Figure 5.16 (b). The difference between the theoretical based impedance method and the energy method is due to the inaccurate estimation of the end correction for each HR in the unit cell. In other words, the coupling between the two HRs is very strong which significantly impacts the actual value of end correction of each HR. The deviation of the numerical and theoretical results of both absorption coefficient and impedance is also attributed to the end correction. The energy balance is calculated in Figure 5.16 (c) to confirm the validity of the simulation.
achievements of construction technology. A sandwichpanel is any structure made up of three layers, a low-density core, and a thin skin-layer bonded to each side. These panels are more durable than traditional building materials and they are lighter in weight. These panels are commonly used in structures due to their superior strength and stiffness and they can also be used when a combination of high structural rigidity and low weight is required. In this paper the flexural behaviour was studied. The size of sandwichpanel consider in this paper was 1200mmX200mmX50mm which is chosen according to the codal provision of D 3043-000 “Standard Test Methods for Structural Panels in Flexure”. In order to achieve light weight sandwichpanel without compromising strength and stiffness, light weight fibers like sisal fiber and basalt fibers were used. The percentage of sisal fiber taken are 2%,2.5%,3% and 2%,2.6%,3.2% of basalt fiber are taken. The Optimum percentage of sisal fiber and basalt fiber were taken from the test results such as compression test, split-tension, which is used for casting sandwichpanel by using Sisal fiber and basalt fibers as skin, core of the panel. Then the flexural strength of the sandwichpanel were studied using two point loading condition. The experimental result is compared with analytical work using ANSYSWORKBENCH 19.2 version software. The Test result show that flexural strength of sandwichpanel shows increased value compared to Analytical Work.
From tensile test and bending test of composite material, tensile strength and bending strength capacity of with hexagonal composite material is less compare to without hexagonal composite material, but it can be negligible. Hence sandwichpanel composite material (with hexagonal structure) is acceptable in Automobile, Aerospace, and Marine engineering.

Kabir (2005) investigated the structural performance of shotcrete lightweight sandwich panels with compressive strength of 12 MPa and tensile strength of 1.2 MPa under shear and bearing loads. The sandwich panels consisted of shotcrete wythes which enclose the polystyrene core. Three specimens are provided for horizontal bending tests, each sandwichpanel is 300 cm long and 100 cm wide with the upper and lower concrete wythes at 6 and 4 cm thick respectively. It was reinforced by the diagonal 3.5 mm cross steel wires welded to the 2.5 mm steel fabric embedded in each wythe as shown in Figure 2.16. Tests for flexural and direct shear loading were carried out based on ASTM E-72 and ASTM 564 respectively.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Abstract - Utilization of Sandwich development for an airplane structural component is exceptionally regular to the present day. One of the essential requirements of aerospace auxiliary materials is that they ought to have low thickness, firm and solid. Sandwich boards are slight walled structures fabricated from two level sheets separated by a low thickness center. The center researched here is of Aluminium20245alloy honeycomb structure due to superb smash quality and exhaustion resistance. Sandwich panels have a high firmness to weight proportion with deference equal strong plate in light of low thickness center. Displaying is created in FEA (ANSYS) by thought of rotating inactivity. The free vibration examination of isotropic plate and sandwich panels are contemplated. The after effects of FEA (ANSYS) are contrasted and result soft test and systematic work. Eight gestured (nodded) isoparametric shell component is utilized for FEA (ANSYS). Meeting study is additionally included for high accuracy of the outcomes. Systematic results depend on traditional bending theory. Mode shapes and comparing normal frequencies are contemplated for simply supported sandwich board. Parameters investigations of isotropic plate and sandwich board are likewise secured in this examination. A detailed parameter study has been completed of an essentially bolstered sandwichpanel by expanding the center profundity as a rate of its aggregate thickness, while keeping up a consistent mass.

The relationship between the impact damage area and the residual compressive strength of the laminates with different ply parameters and the damage area is analyzed by S.A. Hitchen, from a paper .Domestic and foreign scholars have studied the impact of honeycomb sandwich panels containing aluminum honeycomb sandwich panels, and have achieved very good results.
This study focuses on the development of a finite element (FE) model to simulate a HVI behaviour (with velocities up to 1 km/s) of a CFRP-Al/HC sandwichpanel using general-purpose FE software Abaqus/Explicit . A user-defined material model (VUMAT) developed to study damage of CFRP face sheets employing combined Hashin and Puck criteria was used, while the interply damage was modelled by means of cohesive-zone elements. A hydrodynamic response of Al/HC was captured using a Mie-Gruneisen equation of state and its damage was modelled using a Johnson Cook dynamic failure model. The developed FE model was validated with experimental data from Wicklein et al.  and showed a reasonable correlation between damage patterns experimentally and numerically.
Precast lightweight concrete sandwichpanel offers a lighter system which is critical for the construction industry. It provides a quick and efficient construction system when construction costs are critical or the job site is subjected to harsh construction environments. Precast lightweight concrete sandwichpanel can be cast in a controlled environment ensuring structural quality, and then placed in the field with less labor than an in-situ wall. These panels not only provide structural and thermal benefits but also provide architectural benefits. However, it should be stressed that to achieve an optimum result, through planning and practical design and detailing is required.
ABSTRACT: The main objective of this project is to prepare an aluminium alloy glass fiber sandwichpanel and test for the bending moment properties of the sandwichpanel using universal testing machine. This paper theoretically calculates the bending behavior of sandwichpanel. The recent need to develop a new range of materials has resulted in the development of high performance lightweight composites with excellent properties. Metal–composite systems consist of alternating layers of metal and fiber-reinforced polymer composites which are bonded by an adhesive. Sandwich beams were tested under Air Bending. Stress-strain, stress-displacement, load-displacement, strain-Time, Stress-Time, ddisplacement-time and load-time were recorded by using AIMIL UTM. The beam face sheets exhibited a softening non-linearity on the bending side. Experimental results were in good agreement with predictions from simple models. On an overall basis, the sandwichpanel exhibited better bending moment performance than the monolithic Aluminium.
Generally there are three types of pre-cast concrete sandwich panels or PCSP depending on the degree of composite action achieved (Shutt, 1997). A non- composite sandwichpanel is one in which each concrete wyhte acts independently to resist bending. Plane section behaviour is obtained in each wythe, but not through the entire panel depth. A fully composite sandwichpanel is one in which the two concrete wythes act integrally to resist bending allowing the entire panel to perform as a single unit. In theory, a fully composite panel exhibits plane section behaviour throughout its entire depth at all locations along its span. Full composite behaviour is achieved by providing sufficient horizontal shear transfer between the wythes. Shear connectors were tied to the steel mesh in the concrete wythes. The connectors function to transfer load from the outer concrete wythe to the inner one.
Mehdi Tehrani1 et al  investigate the effect of geometric parameters including thickness of core and face sheets, panel height, spot weld distance, and spot weld radius on the mechanical behavior (deflection and shear force) of a corrugated-core steel sandwichpanel. To reduce the complexity of geometry in the finite-element modeling simulation, the size of the model is reduced to a quarter model by applying symmetry planes. Based on the application of the sandwich panels, core geometries for the panels can be designed in different forms and shapes. The obtained results from full factorial analysis with five geometric parameters revealed that core and face sheet thicknesses are the most important factors because they have significant contributions (41% for each) to the panel maximum deflection response.
Guangyong Sun et al.  performed three point bending (TPB) and In panel compression (IPC) tests on aluminium honeycomb sandwichpanel with four different parameters such as thickness of face sheet, hexagonal cell size, foil thickness and height of honeycomb core to investigate crushing and energy absorbing behavior. Ines Ivanez et al.  performed the experimental compressive tests and numerical model to determine the crush behavior and the energy absorption capability of an aluminium honeycomb core by varying the cell size, cell wall thickness and material properties. Conclusion is that the energy absorption capacity increases with increase in cell wall thickness and energy absorption capacity decreases with increase in cell size.

Providing quality affordable accommodation in a sustainable construction method has always been of major challenges facing the housing industry. Prefabricated or modular panelised construction is a method in which house components or parts are pre-fabricated at factory in and transported and erected on site. Modular panelised system is able to reduce construction duration and labour cost. Consequently, more houses can be built considerably faster with lower prices. Other advantages are such as the reduction or elimination of costing delays, less weather damage to material, utilization of precisely engineered material, less amount of energy for cooling and heating and enhanced insulation. Modular panelised systems conventionally use structural insulated panels (SIPs) as favourable construction material. Composite sandwich structure with soft rigid expanded polystyrene core has been broadly utilised in building industry in recent decade particularly after the Modular panelised construction gained considerable attention in the housing market.
