 Abstract
Sandwich panels consisting of various materials have widely been applied for mitigating dynamic impacts such as ballistic and blast impacts. Especially, the selection of materials for different core set-ups can directly influence its performance. In this study, we design the sandwich panels for alleviating ballistic and blast impacts by controlling the stacking sequence of core materials and their thicknesses. FEM studies are performed to simulate the dynamic behavior of sandwich panels subjected to ballistic and blast impacts. Delamination between the core layers is also considered in the FEM studies for feasible design. Based on the FEM data, kriging models are generated for approximating design space and quickly predicting the FEM outputs. Finally, design optimizations are implemented to find the optimum stacking sequence of core materials and thicknesses with given impact situations.
