Abstract : Although failure patterns have been determined, both analytically and experimentally, for sandwich cylinders in wall or cylinder buckling, as well as analytical determinations of Euler or column buckling of such cylinders, little has been done in experimental verification of sandwich cylinders in column buckling. Two longALUMINUM HONEYCOMB SANDWICH CYLINDERS WERE CONSTRUCTED AND TESTED TO DESTRUCTION TO DETERMINE THEIR LOAD-CARRYING, BUCKLING AND POSSIBLE POSTBUCKLING RESPONSES. (Author)
