Abstract
In the present work the compressive properties, collapse modes and crushing characteristics of various types of composite sandwich panels were investigated in a series of edgewise compression tests. The tested sandwich panels were constructed trying four types of polymer foam core (more specifically PMI foam, two grades of linear PVC foam and polyurethane foam) and two types of FRP faceplate laminates made of glass fibre reinforcements impregnated in modified acrylic resin in eight different material combinations. Three modes of collapse were recorded in the compressive tests, one of which being progressive end-crushing of the sandwich panel featured by signific...
