An experimental investigation of the blast resistance of sandwich composites with a stepwise graded core
Date of Original Version
Two types of sandwich panels, having identical core materials, but different core layer arrangement with respect to the density, were subjected to shock wave loading using a shock tube apparatus. The results indicated that a sandwich panel with a monotonously increasing core layer density outperformed that with a discontinuous core layer density.
