Carbon Fiber Sheet Deflection


Central Deflection example of Quasi-Isotropic and Bi-Directional skinned sandwich panels compared to 1 inch thick Aluminum and Steel Plates

 

 

Physical properties of carbon fiber, carbon fiber sheets, analysis of carbon fiber  

-Composite Panels deflection from The Handbook of Sandwich Construction

-Aluminum and Steel Plate deflection from Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain

-Plate loaded by a Uniform distributed load, simply supported along edge. Deflection estimated at the panel/plate center.

 

 

Quasi-Isotropic Skinned Sandwich Panel central deflection for a 28.8 lb/ft^2 uniform load compared to 1 inch thick Aluminum and Steel plates subject to the same uniform load.  

 

 

 Bi-Directional Skinned Sandwich Panel central deflection for a 28.8 lb/ft^2 uniform load compared to 1 inch thick Aluminum and Steel plates subject to the same uniform load.

 

 

 
Plate loaded by a Point load, simply supported along edge. Deflection estimated at the panel/plate center.

 

 

 
Quasi-Isotropic Skinned Sandwich Panel central deflection for a 100 lbf point load compared to 1 inch thick Aluminum and Steel plates subject to the same point load.
