Abstract:

The structural stiffness of sandwich type construction was investigated in order to develop design and construction techniques which will ensure consistent and predictable stiffness characteristics in flutter models utilizing sandwich construction. Specimens which used various fabrication techniques and materials were tested and analyzed to determine the predictability of the stiffness. It was concluded that flutter models can be designed using equivalent type sandwich construction and that they will have predictable characteristics provided care and control are exercised in the construction.
