Abstract

This paper presents results of dynamic deformation behavior of woven natural silk/epoxy sandwich composite panels. The specimens were prepared in configurations of reinforced woven natural silk fiber (RWNSF)/Epoxy/Foam, RWNSF/Epoxy/Coremat; RWNSF/Epoxy/Honeycomb and reinforced RWNSF/Epoxy (control material) using hand-lay-up method. Each of the three core material was sandwiched between reinforced woven natural silk fiber/Epoxy composite facesheet. Drop weight impact test was carried out under 32 J impact energy. Degree of damages inflicted on the contact surface, through thickness and rear surface were analyzed, sandwich composites performed better than the reinforced (control material). Failure mechanism involved interlaminar matrix cracking, layer debonding, delamination and fibre breakage.
