Effect of Layers Arrangement on the response of Sandwich Composite Cantilever Plate

AbstractA numerical study regarding stress, strain, and deflection of a composite plate is presented. The plate, consisting of three layers of Carbon-, Boron-, and Graphite-Epoxy, was fixed at one end and loaded at the other end in a conventional cantilever configuration. Six arrangements were examined and the spatial distribution of stress, strain, and deflection of the upper surface were calculated. Generally, it was found that the order, by which the three layers are arranged, has a great effect on the response of the plate and the maximum stiffness (in terms of deflection) is achieved when using Epoxy with Graphite-Carbon-Boron as the top-central-bottom layers of the plate.
