Composite Section Design for Minimum Weight in Structural Application
A composite structure consist of two face sheets made from material such as metal or fibre composite bonded to light weight material called as core. This light weight composite structure used in application of aircrafts, wind turbine blades, marine and also in other industrial sectors. In this composite structure have top and bottom side mild steel face sheets are used and for core material selected glass fiber reinforced polymer (E-glass/epoxy). In this way minimum weight and increasing of strength can be obtained. In this paper analysis of composite structure is done in Ansys work bench and Total deformation and equivalent stress is analyzed. The model of composite structure is generated in CATIA. The rectangular core composite structure results are compared with circular core composite structure and V core composite structure of with same weight and same boundary conditions and loading.
