Abstract:

A survey of plastics structural sandwich constructions is presented, containing technical information and references that should give the designer and materials engineer a better understanding of the potential usage of these techniques. The information is applicable to the design and fabrication of structural sandwich components for tank-automotive usage or similar applications. Included are technical data and references relating to specifications, various types of sandwich facings and core components, adhesives, sealants, fasteners, ballistics, and nuclear radiation protection. The state-of-the-art search concludes that sufficient advantages of sandwich construction exist to warrant further investigation of practical applications. Author
