Utvärdering av infästningar i sandwichkonstruktioner för fordonsapplikationer
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The automotive industry is increasingly studying lightweight solution in their designs, also rational production and low costs in materials and manufacturing methods are of great interest. This thesis consisted in the practical evaluation of anchors for sandwich panels. The object was to study loads of shearing and pull out of the plane. The experiments were carried out on panels made up of 1mm aluminium coatings and 50mm extruded polystyrene (XPS) at its core. As the fasteners used simple methods such as blind rivets, screw and glue. 44 tests were performed. Out of these 32 considered pullout of the plane and 12 considered shearing. The results show that it is possible to have good strength in shearing and pull with simple methods.
