Abstract

Aluminium foam-cored sandwich panels were subjected to indentation and subsequently tested in four-point bending. The bending strength, failure modes and the deformation behavior were studied and compared with those of undamaged panels. It was found that the localised damage does not have a considerable effect on the failure modes and limit loads.
