Av. dos Estados, 5501 Bangu Santo Andre, SP - Brasil Abstract. The development of composite beams for structural purposes have been investigated in the past. Composite beams made of soft core materials, lie foams, have been used. However, high compressive loads commom in structural applications have led to failure of these materials. New developments using glass fiber reinforced polymer sins and high strength core materials are showing promissing future. Experimental results characterizing some sandwich composite beams developed in Australia have been published, though sin plies layup details have not. The objective of this study is to model laminated sandwich composite beams using experimental results as reference. The proposed fem model analysis is based on an article about the ASTM C four-point bending test of composite sandwiches beams developed by Van Erp and Roger. Several composed ply combinations were modelled using the reported mechanical properties of the glass fiber sin and core material. The fem results relating midspan deflections, load capacity and stress distributions on layers were obtained. The numerical simulation have produced close results compared to the experimental flexural behavior reported. In addition, the stresses in the layers seem to explain the observed failure scenario Keywords: sandwich, composite, bending, beam, fem 1. INTRODUCTION Several approaches on sandwich composite beam fabrication for structural usages have been considered over the past years. Foam and soft materials (wood, plastic for example) were used as core materials, in order to produce a lightweight composite structure. Honeycomb, truss structures were investigated too. Though they mae a lightweight structure, soft core materials are not adequate to hold mechanical connectors. These limitations seem to be better handled by using strong thin layers bonded to high strength thic core. The fibre composite sandwich developed by Van Erp, and Roger (2008) is an example. 2. MATERIAL CHARACTERIZATION The laminated sandwich composites tested by Manalo et al. (2009), were made of modified phenolic material (core material) bonded to bi-axial glass fiber sins. They used a resin obtained from plants to bond the materials. The mechanical properties, in the main direction, of the materials used in the beam fabrication are reproduced in Tab. 1. Table 1. Mechanical properties of sin and core materials. Property Sin Core Young s Module (MPa) Maximum tensile stress (MPa) Maximum compressive stress (MPa) Thicness (mm) The sandwich composite beams were submitted to a four-point bending test in accordance to ASTM C standard. The distance between supports was L = 400 mm and the specimens were 500 mm long. The load-deflection static curves, development of cracs, delamination, etc. were reported. Details about the number of plies, angular orientation of glass fibers of the sin layers were not available Principle of virtual wor and governing equations The principle of virtual wor (Gibson, R. (2007)) done by the actual forces acting on a solid involves the virtual strain energy δ the virtual external wor and corresponds to the balance equation: U int δ and V ext δ U int δv = 0 (1) + ext

2 March 24-08, 2014, Santiago, Chile Let f = f(x) be the transverse load acting on a beam. Let us consider a rectangular beam with cross-section ( b, h) where x is the axial direction, y is along the width direction and z along the height direction. The length of the beam is L.The transverse load will produce internally normal and shear stresses ( σ ; ). Let δ w be a virtual xx τ xz transversal displacement along z coordinate direction, and δψ be the virtual section rotation. The external wor produced by the acting load on a virtual transversal displacement is given by L δ Vext = fδwdx (2) 0 When the beam undergoes a virtual transversal displacement and virtual rotation, the internal stresses produce a virtual strain energy given by: δ where int L = 0 A σ σ : δε dadx; σ = ; τ ε ε = γ U (3) δε xx and xz δγ are the normal and shear strains associated with the virtual displacement and rotations. Integration is taen over all the section, and will depend on the composite section model, 1 or 2. If it assumed that the core region is in plane strain conditions, while the sin is always in plane stress conditions, then in the first case, whereas for the second. Matrices and are the constitutive matrices for elastic behavior. Integrating the virtual strain energy expression through the sandwich beam thicness, layer by layer, the virtual strain energy becomes: 5 δ U = δε CεdAdx (4) int = 1 L A Upon introduction of discretization into finite elements, vector of strains may be written in terms of the vector of lateral displacements by means of an interpolation matrix, so that for each layer: T K = B C BdAdx (5) L A is the layer stiffness matrix. As the sin layers are made of an anisotropic material, rotation matrix results to the main axes directions. This matrix is set equal to the identity matrix for the core material. is used to refer Introduction of the above results into the expression of the principle of virtual wor, Eq. (1) leads to: (6) Being the vector of applied loading. Details are available in Reddy, J. (1993), Reddy, J. (2004). 3. RESULS AND DISCUSSION 3.1 Flat position failure mode Composite materials mechanical behavior is dependent on several factors, i.e, fiber and matrix bonding, plies stacing sequence, plies thicnesses and orientations, angular directions with respect to layup reference directions, etc. The fem model was constructed using the mechanical properties shown in Tab. 1. The bi-axial fiber sins were modeled by plies with ply angles (±45) 2, sequenced by the core material. The core material occupied the middle of the beam. The model can be described by [(±45) 2 /0] s. Different number of plies and orientations were verified, however the [(±45/0] s was the simplest to show good agreement with reported results.

3 Fem models were created using Abaqus software for sandwich composite beams. Sin layers were placed in horizontal position (flat) as well as in vertical one (edge position). Figure 1 is a schematic representation of the four point bending test of the laminated sandwich composite using the 100 N universal testing machine..

(2009) presented the load and midspan deflection experimental results for the beams of rectangular cross-sections tested in the flat and edge positions. Figure 2. Vertical displacements of composite sandwich. The midspan deflection of horizontal beam (Fig. 1: horizontal sin layers) tested in the flat position increased linearly until a load around 4550 N was reached. The corresponding reported midspan deflection was 24 mm. An Abaqus 3D deformable solid model was used to represent the rectangular beam subjected to the four-point bending test. The beam dimensions were 50x20 mm. Model 1 had sin layers placed horizontally on the top and bottom of the beam. The total thicness of the sin layers were 1.92 mm. Figure 2 shows results of the vertical displacement distribution (U2) for the composite solid model of the laminates sandwich beam [(±45) 2 /0] s. The displacements are in meters. The fem maximum vertical displacement result for a four-point bending test simulation was 21.8 mm.

Principal stresses distribution on composite sandwich bottom sin layer. Flat position. Stresses in the core layer are represented in Fig. 3. Figure 4 shows stresses for the bottom sin layer. The stress distribution for the top layer is shown in Fig. 5. The stresses are in SI units (N/m 2 ). Experimental observations report that some tension cracs were observed at the bottom part of the core material. The fem maximum principal stresses in the core materials are at 13.4 MPa (Fig. 3), thus very close to the maximum tensile stresses for the core material (14 MPa). The fem results (Fig. 3) could explain the observed tension cracs at the bottom of the core material. However, it was observed also that core cracs did not cause the final failure. The failure was due to compressive sin stresses followed by delamination between the core and sin materials. There were no shear stresses properties on the report in order to verify the claim by the simulation.

5 The stresses in the bottom sin layer (Fig. 4) are about 12% below the maximum tensile stress for the sin materials (Tab. 1.). The maximum stresses happen in the region between the loads. However, we cannot reach a conclusion without first observing the scenario of the top sin layer. The stresses in the top sin layers are compressive stresses. The maximum compressive stresses of the central region are at MPa (Fig 5.). These stresses are 1% below the maximum compressive stress of the sin material which is 211 MPa (Tab. 1). It should explain the reason why the specimen failed due to compressive failure of composite sins. Figure 5. Principal stresses distribution on composite sandwich top sin layer. Flat position Edge position failure mode Laminated sandwich composite rectangular beams placed on the vertical position, edge position, are also setched in Fig. 1. The sin layers are placed in vertical position at the vertical sides of the rectangle. An abaqus 3D deformable composite solid model was constructed. The solid beam model had dimension 20x50 mm. Model 2 assumes four vertical sin layers at each side of the core layer, with a total 1.92 mm for the sin thicness [(±45) 2 /0] s. The experimental investigation mentions the edgewise rectangular beam bending test results. Load and deflection increased linearly until 5000 N during the experiment. Cracs were observed appearing in the core material leading to slope reduction of load against deflection curve, ie, different mechanical properties. Next, the loading increased until 5500 N and the deflections reached 8 mm. However, the deflections progressed even further without an increase in the applied load. The failure occurred with an approximate 14 mm deflection. The Figure 6 shows the vertical beam displacement under a 5500 N load obtained by the fem model simulation. The displacements in the pure bending region are mm. (0.4L)[4(0.4L) 2 3L 2 ] The maximum displacement formula w max = P corresponding to the four bending test 24EI 3 3 H t s H t c settings turns w max = 9.06 mm, with EI = Es + Ec being H=beam height, t= beam thicness, E= Young s module; s= sin material and c=core material. The results are in good agreement with the fem model simulation ones.

6 March 24-08, 2014, Santiago, Chile Figure 5. Vertical displacements of composite sandwich. Edge Position. The stresses in the vertical core material are represented in Fig. 6. Figure 7 shows the stresses in the leftmost sin layer. It can be observed that the maximum stress level (Fig. 6) in core material (+14.5 MPa) is higher than the maximum tensile core stress level (Tab. 1). Figure 6. Principal stresses on composite sandwich core layer. Edge Position This stress level explains the appearance of tensile cracs in core material. However, the load- deflection experimental curve shows an increase in the amount of deflection without any increase of the applied load. Certainly, the mechanical properties available (Tab. 1) would not the material behavior changes. Figure 7 shows the principal stresses reached in the leftmost sin layer material. The sin tensile and compressive stresses are approximately 30% below the maximum stress levels (Tab. 1). Based on the core stress level, expect outcome would be a failure of the core material. The experimental observation mentions that the core tensile cracs did not progress due to the presence of vertical sin layers. The constant load-deflection plateau represents a stress

7 redistribution leading to progressive compressive and tensile sin failure. Additional mechanical properties are needed to simulate the non-linear behavior. We can conclude that the fem models predict close enough the experimental observations. However, the models would need more mechanical properties to characterize the delamination and other experimental measures. 4. REFERENCES Figure 7.
