Simultaneous shape and material optimization of sandwich panels with honeycomb core for additive manufacturing
Communication sans acte
This works deals with the problem of the optimum design of a sandwich plate composed of CFRP faces and Al honeycomb core. The proposed design strategy is a multi-scale numerical optimization procedure that does not make use of any simplifying assumption to find a global optimum configuration of the system. The goal of such a procedure consists in simultaneously optimizing the shape of the unit cell of the honeycomb core (meso-scale) and the geometrical as well as the material parameters of the CFRP laminated skins (meso and macro scales). To prove its effectiveness, the multi-scale optimization strategy is applied to the problem of the least-weight design of a sandwich panel subject to constraints of different nature: on the positive-definiteness of the stiffness tensor of the core, on the admissible material properties of the laminated faces, on the local buckling load of the unit cell of the core, on the global buckling load of the panel and geometrical as well as manufacturability constraints linked to the fabrication process of the honeycomb core.

Thermo-mechanical homogenisation of cork-based composites: variability in materials properties and propagation of uncertainty Conférence invitéeThe last decades have been characterized by a growth of raw material demand, in particular due to the consumerism in developed countries and to the fast industrialization of emerging economies. Nowadays, with the aim to ...

A multi-scale two-level optimisation strategy integrating a global/local modelling approach for composite structures Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureIn this work, a multi-scale optimisation strategy for the preliminary design of composite structures involving design requirements at different scales, is presented. Such a strategy, denoted as GL-MS2LOS, has been formulated ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureThis paper focuses on the analytical formulation of a tensorial laminate-level failure criterion. The criterion is formulated and expressed in the framework of the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT) in order to ...
