Abstract

In this report presented the investigation of axial progressive compression on sandwich composite cylinder made from basalt fibre reinforced composite tube as skins and polyurethane (EPU) foam as core of the structure. The effect of braid orientation angle of the sandwich skins and foam core thickness were evaluated on the parameter performance namely peak force, average force, total energy absorption, crush force efficiency, and specific energy absorption. The primary failure mode observed was progressive failure fibre cracking and tube’s wall folding and crumping. Experiment result showed that the effect of outer wall braid angle of sandwich tube structure was the dominant factor contributed to high energy absorption capacity. Furthermore, the foam thickness has no significant influences on the SEA value; however, the total diameter size of sandwich tube skins was.
