Optimal design of sandwich plates with honeycomb core
Communication avec acte
This work deals with the problem of the optimum design of a sandwich structure composed of two laminated skins and a honeycomb core. The goal is to propose a numerical optimisation procedure that does not make any simplifying hypothesis in order to obtain a true global optimal solution for the considered problem. In order to face the design of the sandwich structure at both meso and macro scales, we use a two-level optimisation strategy. At the first level, we determine the optimum geometry of the unit cell together with the material and geometric parameters of the laminated skins, while at the second level we determine the optimal skins lay-up giving the geometrical and material parameters issued from the first level. We will illustrate the application of our strategy to the least-weight design of a sandwich plate submitted to several constraints: on the first buckling load, on the positive-definiteness of the stiffness tensor of the core, on the ratio between skins and core thickness and on the admissible moduli for the laminated skins.
